Hillbilly Water Park

So y’all remember we haven’t had the best of luck with our pool… Well… Some of my family pitched in to help us replace our pool liner which was a huge relief.  However we called around to price installation & liners… people around these parts are flippin out of their mind!  So we ordered our pool liner and had friends/family come out and we replaced it our self!

Bad part about that, having to use well water to fill it, especially since we haven’t had rain in what seems like months.  Those few sprinkle showers here and there don’t count!

On a side note, I’m so ready to Dance In The Rain!!!!!!

So it’s been slow filling it up, however, what better way to celebrate my birthday & T’s birthday then by making a make-shift water park, like we did earlier this summer when we were filling up the pool!  Bring it on!

Hey it was hot, the water was COLD!  and we didn’t have to stand around in lines for hours to ride rides at a water park, what more could you ask for?

I swear the kids had frog feet, they just walked right up it.

The adults, didn’t have that kind of luck so we went up backwards on our butts 🙂

It's Getting Hot Out Here

Last summer a glass candle got put out by our pool and by the end of summer it got bumped and busted in our pool.  We got majority of the glass out of the bottom (it’s 12 feet at the deep end) but to be sure that we got all the glass out, we completely drained the pool and shop-vaced it out.  Then we had to re-fill it.  We aren’t done refilling it yet, even but we got a good start this weekend.

But while we were at it… it was hot (we broke record highs over the weekend), the water was inviting… so we played too :).  Earl brought her kids over and we all had a hay day!

Just as Earl and the kid showed up I was standing on the slope, hit a wet slick spot and down I went.  Now we have well water and our pool never gets warm anyway, but filling it with well water, it was chilly!

T is a fish 🙂

Since it slopes down to the deep end, we had the water hose put into the skimmer and the pump sucked it out the jets so it made the slope like a slip’n’slide.


Plus we were careful and made sure we wore our Sunscreen.

Hi Hubby!

We actually had so much fun we joked around about keeping it this way… LOL

I just wanted to be sure you knew I really was there.

Then we broke out some of the fun pool toys.

and PC blew up Tbug’s float for Moo to use.

And finally out came the water guns

When that happened we decided Earl needed a swimsuit.  She teased me about not being able to fill out my top so I told her I’d loan her Tbug’s.  We all got a good laugh at that slam.

That first “in” to the water is cold!

We had a fun couple hours!
