TIME FOR A POOL PARTY!!!
I am so excited, our pool is finally complete. It took a couple weeks longer than we had anticipated because we had to wait for the landscapers to finish a job ahead of ours but it was worth the wait.
I have to admit that while we were in the process of the pool installation I did NOT think that a pool was worth all of the hassle. It was a huge headache trying to coordinate the pool company, the electrician, the landscaper, fence builder and the patio company but now that it is complete I am so happy with it. The one thing we agreed on was that we did not want a typical rectangle pool.
I really like the design of the circular pool. My husband wanted a pool that reminded him of a pond but I wanted our existing paver patio to meet up with it so that friends with small children can sit pool side. The river rock and patio extension turned out to be a great compromise.
Have a great day everyone, I myself will be sitting pool side (well after I link up to the follow blogs)
