More backyard stuff...

Finally, I can see light at the end of the tunnel with this yard!! We're not there yet, but getting closer. It rained so much last week and there was not much progress til today. They poured the patio today and will finish tomorrow when they power wash the release color off. I can't wait to see what it will look like. That was the most stressful decision to date! I took a picture, but keep in mind that the release color is a powder and it is covering the whole patio.

Also, the pool guys were out today putting in the ladder, handrail and diving board. They also cleaned it-It looks so clear now!! So, of course the kids jumped off the board as soon as they got home. And, by kids, I mean James, too! The boys didn't even change, they jumped in with their clothes on! They were so excited that I didn't have the heart to stop them! Avery did go get her suit on and her flip-flops, life jacket, floaty ring and whatever else she could drag out there! She is so funny! You can tell my kids were raised in a boat. They think nothing of having a life jacket on in the pool! She is not a great swimmer yet, so I will just let her wear it as long as she wants!!

First, Aaron jumped in {of course!}

Then, Andrew

Then Avery, no jumping off the board for her, she is happy just to hang out on the steps at the other end!

Finally, James couldn't stand to be left out!

It was only 72 degrees out and the pool water was 66 degrees.
Brrr...much too cold for me!

Thanks for stopping by!
