What a difference a day makes!

Did you know that this is the 5th house that we've lived in since we've been married?!?!? (And that doesn't include our newlywed apartment and the house we lived in temporarily with John's fraternity brother - now that's a whole 'nother blog!!) Needless to say, we are ready to settle in for the long haul! We love our house, our neighbors, the schools and our, we've decided to make this house what we want it to be!

Last year was the "year of the bathrooms"! We added two baths to the house and updated our master bath. This year our major renovation is...drum roll, please.... A POOL!!!! Yep, we've thought about this for over a year and we've done a lot of research. We decided to bite the bullet and the process began today....

Yesterday, the backyard looked like this....

And today, by 3:30, it looked like this....

It was unbelievable! We just keep going outside to stare! And can you guess who is the most excited?!?!? Sam and Lily! They are ready to dive in!

So, we'll keep you updated on the progress and we'll let you know when the first pool party will be!

You realize, of course, that it will be hard to keep my Dad away if you are now putting in a pool. I am happy for you guys! I know you will ALL enjoy the pool this summer. I am a little jealous =)

Love to all - And I am proud of you for starting a blog!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! And how cool to be putting in a pool - right in time for summer. It's amazing how much progress they made in one day. How fun!

Have a great weekend!

Hey Laurie,
Congrats on the blog!! I'm one of Vickie's daughters and she said you started a blog. I've actually had to "limit" my computer time b/c I find myself blog-surfing for HOURS! We've been thinking about putting in a pool as well so I'm curious to see how your's turns out. We did a pool in TN and it was a disaster (the end result was great but getting there was not fun!) So far, it looks fabulous!!
Take care,
