It's a grey, wet day today, but we were lucky that Sunday was a pleasant, sunny one for our inaugural swim in Mike and Darla's new pool. I'm amazed at how quickly the process went. One day Darla said, "We're thinking of getting a swimming pool" and almost before the words were out of her mouth, there was a digger in her backyard. And then the next day, she called us to come for a swim. It was THAT fast. Mike and Darla (and their neighbour) may have a slightly different version than that, but those pool guys aren't lazy.
And it's beautiful. All of it - the shape of the pool, the concrete, the liner, the slide. Spencer made me promise that we'd get a slide just like theirs if we got a pool. That's one promise I'm pretty sure I can keep. As much as I wish this was the view of my backyard, I am happy to drive 10 minutes and share theirs.
