Staycation: Backyard Pool Time

Summer is James’ crazy-insane-busy time at work. Instead of heading off for a family vacation we opt. for staycations during the summer. This year we are working on the backyard. 

  
We spent a lot of time clearing the site and hauling in lots of dirt to level the ground. 

Last weekend we dug in and got the pool up, and pavers buried. 

  

 
We filled the pool, but we haven’t been swimming just yet. We are still getting the chemical balance just right. 

  

I get the job of testing the pool in the morning and evening. It is pretty fun though, my inner science-nerd can’t resist playing with chemicals.

Hopefully we’ll open the pool on Friday or Saturday. I think it is going to be a great addition to our little outdoors.
