A few days with no rain and the pool is finally in!

With all the rain that we have been having I was honestly beginning to think that this day was never going to happen.
Luckily, the rain stayed away for a few days and the ground dried up enough to get this in here.
By the end of Friday we had the pool up and began filling it.
Now ~ two days later and we are still working on getting it filled.
No hurry though, because it's gonna be a while before the water is warm enough to get into.
But at least it's installed!

Other weekend happenings:
~ enjoyed the first backyard fire of the season with a few friends over
~ picked up a few more plants for my mini garden that I'm going to plant tomorrow
~ enjoyed breakfast out this morning for Mothers Day...yeah NO cooking!
~ tilled, raked and seeded grass around the new pool area
~ Grilled out with the whole family at my parents house for Mothers Day dinner...yeah again, NO cooking
~ didn't even have to do the dishes at Mom's because hubby did them for us.
Hope you all had a great Mothers Day too!
I'll be back tomorrow with more pictures from our trip!

You will love that pool....We had one put in when our daughter was 11 and it was well worth the years of enjoyment. And the good thing about it is....when she left home and we never used it anymore and it became a hassle to keep clean...we tore it down!! Easy enough...unlike one in the ground!
I hope you had a beautiful Mothers Day!!
Enjoy that cool water this summer!!

Yeah! I'm glad it finally dried up so you could get your pool! It looks great! It is hard to believe how long it takes to fill them up. We had one when I was a kid and our neighbor let us use their water too so it would get filled sooner! lol I've known people around where I live now that haul in their water to fill it because we have well water and can't spare to fill a pool from it.

I got lucky and didn't have to cook yesterday either!

Have a Great Day!
