Our New Pool: Start to Finish!

18 Nov

When we were looking for our new house, we knew we wanted it to have a pool. When we searched the market, turned out many houses with our must haves did not have a pool… Bummer. We then looked for houses with a big enough backyard to be able to put in our own pool. Our house had just that. It’s not by any means a BIG backyard but it’s not teeny tiny like some in Orlando. We still have enough grass space for the doggies and Kyler to play.

Here is the pool building process in photos step by step:

Pool in the design stage:


Last day of having a grassy backyard:

Sod is cut & frame for the pool is done:

Time to dig a pool!

Steel is next!

Gunite! Actually looks like a pool.

Plumbing… yikes!

We have tile!!

Let’s add some pavers….

and the baby fence!

Almost done…. shooting the finish, Grey Harbor Mini Pebble.

Last step… add the water!

That’s our new pool!!

Next is Phase 2: Pergola and summer kitchen. Here is a sneak peak!

Stay tuned!!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

16 Jun

This week has been an exciting week because they started construction on our pool!

A few days later….this guy showed up and the real work begun!

Kyler and Ammo watched.

Isn’t our pool beautiful? 🙂

Kyler looks so much like Chris here!

My Friday off was spent shopping with my momma…. always a good time 🙂

For Father’s Day, we headed back to my parents to have some fun in the pool.

She loves her Daddy ❤

Kyler made her Daddy a few presents for Father’s Day.

She loves paint and they make such cute gifts at this age so I am happy with how they came out and I know Chris loved them too.

Kyler enjoyed herself some corn on the cob… although half way through she decided to try out a different way to eat it.


Happy Father’s Day to everyone!!!

Happy Father’s Day to my wonderful and amazing hubby, Chris! You are the BEST dad and Kyler and I are so incredibly lucky to have  you ❤

Happy Father’s Day to MY awesome Daddy-O! I couldn’t have picked a better Dad if I tried 🙂 I’ve looked up to you ever since I was a little girl and you continue to be the person I go to when I need guidance, help, or just need someone to talk to. You are a GREAT Poppa and she loves you so much!

Happy Father’s Day to my Pappy, I know you are reading this 🙂 I love you and you always know how to make a crowd laugh.

and last but not least, Happy Father’s Day to my Father-in-law! We wish we lived closer to you so we could celebrate days like these in person but we are thinking of you!
