Jumpin' Jack

Well.. this day has come. Our time with our pool has come to an end.

We knew you wouldn't last forever. We knew you would eventually get little holes and tears in you, that despite our best efforts (er.. husband's best efforts), prove to be too overwhelming to consider storing you for another year.

We played with you a total of 6 months out of a 2 year period. While yes, the time with you was rather short, we filled our hearts with lots of memories with you. And we will take them with us as we grow.

And, well.. we just had to let Jack have some fun the last day you were with us.

Jack had been waiting to do that all summer. Nothing like jumping in the pool to fetch the ball.

And we were so glad that we didn't let Jack in the pool before this day.
It looked like waste water when he was finished with it.

But, sometimes fun is messy.

Happy Sunday,

He does look like he's been waiting all summer to do that! Fair thee well pool, fair thee well. Maybe a new one next summer?

Jack has grown so much! Looks like everyone got to enjoy some time in the pool before it had to go. Our local aquatic center has a dog day before they close up the outdoor pools for the winter. Dogs are allowed to swim all day long! Sadie isn't much for water but Jack would love it!

I love that photo! Boy, when pool's go, they really go, don't they? This house had a huge above ground pool when we moved in and we dug the whole thing out and filled it in with dirt after about 3 years of nothing but problems.
