Some cool pool pix

what an amazing action shot, huh? go agile

My little sea monkeys

so much for the idyllic scene...this was David's first time in the pool for this season, he wanted to make a splash!

Not much to say here, just wanted to post these pool pictures for your Monday viewing pleasure. So while you are at work, or going about your business, whatever it is that you do, maybe these splashy pix will cool you off.

I do have to say, though, that we are so thankful for this pool! I grew up in Michigan. The Great Lakes state. I would swim in lakes occasionally but preferred the family pool that was strategically placed between my mom's parents house and her brother's. We didn't have any air conditioning in the summer, it gets hot and muggy. We spent a lot of time in that pool. I thought everyone swam everyday, all summer long. I thought everyone had a place that they could cool off in! Needless to say, when we moved down here to Indiana, we didn't have that luxury anymore. Having a pool makes all of those hot, sometimes mundane outside chores and activities a little more tolerable (have I said this before?)...because you can get the job done and jump in the pool. We are so happy to have this pool...and as we probably will be every year that it's running, thanks to Becky's in-laws, for giving it to us! It has not been without our share of hard work, sweat and money but it's been a great gift! gracias!!

So, come on down to swim!

Hi there! Glad to see the gang lovin' the pool. Do Cunniff's get an honorary pool pass?? :) This branch of the Cunniff's are pool folks from way back! I have some great pics of my kids and their cousins at the pool from days gone by. There is nothing like pool water and lots of sunshine for a fun day!

Cool pool! It looks so luxerious (is that how you spell it? oh well)with the white fence around it. You guys enjoy your spoils!

Heather said...

Ooh, that looks soooo nice! The deck looks awesome! We had a pool when I was a kid and I know from experience that putting it all together is no small task. Kudos to you guys!

Nice job! It looks great.
Our pool is cleaned out and about 1/2 way full..but the water is already starting to look murky (I put in 2 shocks and some algaecide yesterday. Work, please!) because Nate is being a slacker on getting the pump/filter running. But me and Em have gone out twice even though it's only knee-deep and gotten sunburns. Yay! :P

I posted.
