It did not pass inspection today. Now you may fill the pool with your tears.
Today they put up the fence and the magna lock!!! Wooohooo!!! If this pool passes inspection we will be swimming this weekend. We may be just a little excited!!!
“When our baby do scoop and pull she’s beautiful.” ~ Kimberly Watch the video and listen to the commentator. Both are priceless. *Mimi is the little one with the 2 pig tails and the pink monkey leotard.
Today they put up the fence posts.
“Hello” ~ Annie She will say this anytime to try to catch someone’s attention. It has to be enunciated just perfectly to get the entire gist but imagine a precocious almost 4 year old telling you to listen up.
Today they cut all the pipes down that were protruding for the in floor cleaning system. I somehow forgot to take a pic.
The kids and I have had a little cold for 2 days now. Today I woke up feeling better and so did they so we set out on our big adventure, or “abenture” as they call it. We went to Albertson’s and got donuts for the girls and coffee for me. Then we drove to [...]

No picture for today but they did rebuild our block fence that they tore down. I hope they will be hanging the gate tomorrow so we can have our backyard back!!!
Would have been 5 years old today. I miss her and cannot imagine who she would be. Both of those things bring me such sadness. Not knowing who she would be is so hard. Would she be loud and boisterous like Kimberly, zany and excitable like Annie, or sweet and sensitive like Mimi? We planted [...]
I had to catch a picture of the girls. The pool construction photos are not complete without these pics. The girls have LOVED each phase. They love to go out and watch the “worker guys.” If you click on the gallery of photos you will also see the 3 dolphins that we have placed on [...]
Here is Kimberly in her romper. I am planning to make each girl one but the ruffle in their signature color.
Today they poured the decking!
“Daddy, it’s not called washing. It’s called rinsing.” — Kimberly The response when asked if she had washed the shampoo out of her hair under the shower.
