Getting ready for pool time

I love love love having a pool y'all!! It's huge and it literally takes up the entire back yard.  I put my feet in it every night when I get home from work.  
It's so hot outside that the water is perfect for swimming.  I've gone a little crazy on floaty's.  I have a long alligator with handles , 3 regular long ones, one shaped as Popsicle , 8 noodles , and 2 floating coolers. My favorites are my swans!!! I'ts funny because I had mentioned to Todd and to a friend of mine that I really wanted a big swan for our pool.  They were kinda expensive though. Todd had looked for me at the pool supplies place and it was 80$. No kidding , the very next day I spoke of the swan to my friend, I went into Kohls on my lunch hour and low and behold- my swan was in middle aisle display - on sale  1/2 off AND I had 20% off coupon. SCORE!!!  I got the white one from them and later that evening on TV I saw a commercial or show that had a big pink one.  I ended up on eBay and didn't find a pink one but I bought a big black one.  I am so happy!! My dog Jax though hates them. He barks nonstop and is scared to go around it. I had to go stand by it so he would know it wasn't dangerous.  Lol. 
So I'm ready to soak up some sun while floating on my swans this holiday weekend .  


  1. I love those swans. I recently saw the big pink one somewhere, but I cannot remember where! Your pool looks so inviting. I loved when we had a pool. But so expensive to keep up. So we let it go.....

  3. Hi, Holli!

    Your swans remind me of the big white one my parents bought for our backyard pool when I was a kid. I used to hang onto it and fall asleep floating around in a circle, carried gently along by the current generated by the pump and skimmer. You are lucky to have such a large pool in which to cool off on these scorching hot summer days in Texas. It's funny that Jax gets spooked when he sees your float toys. I hope he doesn't put the bite on them. :)

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Holli!

  4. I love, love, love our pool. It's just a 10,000 gallon above ground, but it is still awesome! I like it especially at night, before bed. The air is cool, the water is warm and the stars!!!

  5. I'm glad you have a pool. We had one in our last house which we lived in for 17 years. Enjoy and your toys sound like a lot of fun!!!
