A Dream Come True

Since we have been married, Jon and I have always hoped to someday have a pool in our backyard. I have such fond memories of the swimming pool in our house growing up, with pool parties and swimovers (instead of sleepovers). I spent most of the summer in the pool from morning until nighttime.

Jon and I decided that it would be so wonderful to be able to provide this same experience for our kids. In our last house, the backyard was tiny, so it was not an option. In our new house, we decided that the pool would have to be pretty small in order to make it fit, so it probably wouldn't work either. So we embarked on the journey of building a nice patio to enjoy, thinking that we would pursue a pool in our next house.

Until yesterday, that is. After the torrential rain pour, our soon-to-be wonderful patio had turned into a pool! So I guess our dream came true at last!!

When can we come over to swim? hahaha! Hopefully, it will dry out today and tomorrow!

I was wondering how the patio was holding up! I'm sure it is a nice soggy mess today.
