OUR FIRST POOL DAY!

It finally happened - we got into the pool for the first time on July 4th! With all the rain we've been having because of Hurricane Alex, it delayed us from being able to enjoy the pool, but we did today! It has been a gorgeous day and we had a blast in the pool, and now I'm pleasantly exhausted!
Haley put Otto in the pool with her. He doesn't look very happy to me, but we were glad to see that he can jump out of the pool by himself. That way, if he ever falls in and is smart enough to swim over to the shelf, he'll be able to get out! Let's hope he never falls in!
Here I am at my FAVORITE place, the sun shelf! It is nice and cool under that umbrella and a nice beverage of some sort would have made it cooler, but there will be other times for that! I know I'm going to spend LOTS of time right here! Otto liked being in the shade, too!
I'm so happy with our pool. It is very relaxing to be in it and to listen to the waterfall. Call Suncor Services if you want a pool. They did a great job for us!
Even Randy is enjoying the pool today! After playing in the pool for THREE HOURS, I am exhausted and I need to take a nap! I'm not used to that much physical activity. Maybe this pool will get me into better shape! We played frisbee and floated around on some little intertubes that Carolyn Gray sent me and it wore me out!
I'm lovin' it, lovin' it, lovin' it! It was worth it all! Now I feel like I'm on vacation even when I'm at home! What could be nicer than that?

YEA!! I am so glad that you got to get in the pool. I was wondering about that. I love the umbrella too. Never seen a pool with an umbrella in it, great idea! Now I just need to see the lights....

I love your pool! I think Otto will like it better when he gets used to it more.

I’ve read all the installation process posts, and I must say, it was definitely worth the wait! Your swimming pool looks so wonderful! It’s a good decision that you made it Zen-like, because the design made your pool area look relaxing and calm. Cheers!
