beat the heat

We have a new addition to our backyard.  I like to say we are sacrificing style for comfort!  It may not be the prettiest thing and it may not be what you would call "seller friendly" but seriously no one's buying my house anytime soon anyway and it's insanely hot in Georgia so bring on the redneck pool!!

We bought this last Sunday from Wal-Mart for $39, even with the small amount of chemical we had to purchase it was a great deal and worth every penny.  Micah and Connor have been it in every day since and have played a minimum of two and a half hours straight in it.  They do take popsicle breaks though.

and what's a pool without a diving board!?

We do have a winterize plan though.  Zach dug out the grass underneath where we put the pool because we needed to sod a couple extra spots in the back yard.  After pool season is over and if we still live here which, let's face it, is a huge probability, we're going to line the bare dirt with landscaping stones and put down some mulch and put our fire pit in the middle with some cute chairs around.  Summer win and Winter win!
