2012: A friend said she had a pool she didn't want anymore and would Rylie and I like it. Ok sure. Before this my husband wasn't keen on the idea of a pool. Well by the time it was dragged into the backyard it had like 10 leaks that I patched but could never get to stay. It was a sad, sad pool.
|Fuel line sprouted leak in first loader.|
|Luckily, friend had another one and this one had an electronic level thing so really leveled yard perfectly.|
|Pool up finally!|
|Rylie getting in for first time!|
|Rainy days ruin our fun!|
|, Hand digging....|
|I had came up with the extended ramp idea for getting the witch out and still getting the hole completed without having to hand dig out the ramp.|
|This gives you an idea how deep it was and we still had to hand dig a lot to get the walls vertical.|
|20 tons of sand|
|Rylie was totally psyched to finally be in the pool!|
|Good thing we leveled the yard in 2012 huh? LOL!|
|See the braces, there were deeper ones as well.|
|We do not agree on pool ladders by the way. So we still have both.|
|Rylie in the water a couple weeks later. It was only May and it was coooooooooold! 65 degrees I believe.|
|Covered to thwart the duck return.|
|Old patio broken up and weeds returning where we once had grass.|
|Uh oh lots of rain led to algae bloom.|
|Pat bought more floats then could possibly ever be used in the pool at one time.|
Also, today tried to get dogs in but they weren't too comfortable. Doggy Daycare Pool Time was what I was originally thinking but that takes construction and maybe all they need is a stable rest area. So I'll bring home some shelving for the dogs to have a rest area like this owner did.
Also need a new volleyball ours has several holes. Then Pat needs a new rigging for the volleyball net poles. He has a plan of course.
Oh and this would be fun and be better for playing HORSE than how Rylie and I played today.
I wish I'd snapped a picture when we were all in it today. But it's hard because whenever Pat and Joe are in a war always erupts. Poor Rylie, Des and I had to hide behind floats and each other. I finally had the great idea to grab the hose and cool them off. Just like training cats!
