we had a little family get together a few weekends ago. Nothing like bribing your grand-children over to your place than with a new swimming pool. Yep, we know how to live it up around here.
Lots of bubbles too!
(the outside photos were taken from the inside through the window screen, I haven't been outside in my back yard all year but I can get close when the windows are open)
Miss M caught off-guard by the picture taking...
here again, mommy snuck up on her and caught her cheer leading, rah-rah.
the new pool. has a slide and a crocodile mouth full of balls, and of course bubbles.
bubbles and more bubbles...
That is about all the excitement around here. No rain for over three months, everything is crisp and my gardens are hideous. Maybe it is a good thing I can't get out there and see them. We had one pepper that we have been babying along for quite awhile and almost ready to pick when it was eaten by some sort of critter. Left a big bite right out the center. The gall. No green grass and most annuals are gone due to watering restrictions. Very scary fire danger out there. We have a field behind our back fence and it it just dried out brush just waiting for the right time to take off---fingers crossed. The whole west coast is sizzling it seems. Hoping things are well where you are and that now that the dog-days of summer are here you are safe and enjoying the season's end.
