Swimming!

September 12th- 30th, 2014 The boys spend any free time out here!  We are getting a small glimpse of what next summer will be like! The first time getting in… Love their faces.  They were smiling from ear to ear. I think they like it! It took them no time at all to start practicing jumps off the wall. Night swimming is another...

The Outdoor Kitchen and Cool Deck

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...

Family Day at the Waterpark

Week #36 of 52- September 7th Exxon hosted it’s Annual Family Day at the Waterpark today.  The boys were thrilled to be back after attending the event last year.  We spent the entire day there and had tons of fun.  The best part of the day= No lines.  Priceless! Caleb provided us some entertainment as we applied sunblock. Adam is in the green tube.  This is the crazy ride of the park. You have to weigh 110 pounds and cannot wear any loose clothing. After a countdown to zero, the bottom drops out from under you and you are rocketed through the tubes to the end. No, thank you. Fun...

Pool Time with the Neals!

Week #35 of 52- August 28th We headed to the pool with the Neals on Wednesday evening.  Adam and Kent (aka Mr. Neal) were able to join us as well!  Unfortunately, I didn’t take many photos while we were there.  The big hit of the evening was the diving board as the kids tried to one up each other with silly jumps and dives.  Gotta love all of the...
