A Pool Visitor

June 14th, 2015 We drove back into town and saw this guy in the pool.  Smart turtle.  🙂 The boys had some fun scooping him up and placing him outside of the pool. He would run as fast as he could and dive back in to the water.  It was pretty funny! He would dive down to the bottom and then swim back up and over to the edge. We gave him 10 minutes or so and then decided we better take him somewhere more suitable for him. Lucky for him we have a lake at the entrance to our neighborhood. He will be much happier...

Night swimming is another...

The Outdoor Kitchen and Cool Deck

September 30th, 2014 The outdoor kitchen was started as soon as the pool was finished.  The process took about 2 weeks to complete.  As soon as the kitchen and the landscaping around the pool were complete, the cool deck was sprayed onto the pool deck.  This spray coating will help keep the decking cool to the touch in the heat of the summer sun.  With this, our backyard was done!  (We will eventually plant some trees to provide some shade but have to figure out what exactly we want and where we want it.)  We love how everything turned out! The same split face that was used on the...

The Process of Building a Pool

September 11th, 2014 We took the plunge (See what I did there?) and bought a pool!  Ever since returning to the South, we have had the idea of getting a pool for the boys floating around in the back of our minds.  Knowing the boys would love to have one and also having peace of mind that they were old enough for us not to worry about their safety, we decided to go for it.  Along with a pool, we wanted to install an outdoor kitchen.  Adam and I were both in agreement that we would wait out 2014 (since summer was almost over) and consider putting in a pool some time in 2015 but wanted to...
