Guess What's Happening......

Our son, David Keith and DIL, Kathy 
have transformed an already gorgeous spot
into a 1st Class Resort...
right outside my dining room French doors.

You may recall that they had a beautiful pool
between their large house and our Summer House... absolute
beautiful pool.

they began having issues with it that would be costly to repair....
and there was so much more they wanted for their
outside family/friends enjoyment.....

Rebuilding had begun !

...then the BIG GUNS were brought in.


 ....putting in re- bar and getting ready to add concrete.

Yep...they tore out the original pool
and just wait til you see what they built....
here they are blowing in the concrete and something else
to form the base of the new pool.

It was so interesting and lots of fun to watch these fellas work....
they were so professional and did amazing work.

I will leave you here...
and I can not WAIT to show you how fantastic and beautiful
this all turned out.
It was a HUGE job and took most of the winter into spring to complete...
We were so lucky to have good weather thru the winter
and they didn't miss many days work due to weather.

Stay tuned for
palm trees
magical slide
more water falls
fire pits ( O HONEY)
many different colors of lights
outdoor kitchen TO. DIE. FOR.
and other things......

It's so unbelievable and such a delight to look out and seeTHIS.....
(a sneak preview)

2 little great-grands and their pretty mama,
lovin' the water....

  21. Looks good so far, but I'd rather not have a pool myself. Too much money and work for my tastes

  28. Oh, how beautiful that must be. Hurry, you know I am not very patient.

  29. Howdy my sweet friend, glad you stopped in again and thanks for your sweet comments, and your compliments--mercy, not sure what I had on that you thought was cute, I probably just threw on old blue jeans and a sweater and my good ole strong/sturdy/old black shoes, ha ha ha LOL But I do appreciate the compliment anyway! I hope your week is going well and what are you doing Easter? Easter is my favorite holiday and I look forward to it all year. Do you have family coming or are you going to them? I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the pool all full and ready and done up pretty, it sure looks like it's going to be nice. Do you swim any?????
