My parents’ pool is finally open!
My parents had to put in a new liner and stairs this year. It took forever because it has been raining here often in the last couple of weeks. And before that they were waiting for the stairs to come in. It’s been torture watching the slow progress.
This was the pool just last weekend.
Not a pretty sight. But now it’s done and yesterday I got to get my swim on. It was glorious!
After lounging in the pool most of the afternoon, Sassy, my mom, and I hit up the big sale at JCP. Sassy tried to talk my into buying her this Olaf.
I’m going to take a hard pass on that one. We happened to run into my sister-in-law there, too! Seems we all had vacation clothes shopping on our brains.
Speaking of vacation, I can’t believe ours is going to be here in just a few short weeks! I’m so ready for it! When my girls were little, we would a paper chain to help them countdown the days to vacation. Last weekend we shared that tradition with one of my nieces.
What traditions have you shared with younger family members?
