Summer projects and fun!!

School is officially out here, so we have started SUMMER!!

Ryan had a few days off last week, we went to Paducah and strolled around, had lunch at Kirchhoff's, the BEST place we have ate at in a long time!! While we were in Paduch we checked out some of the sites, Abigail had to have her picture taken with the train. We also went to the Art Music Fest, it was a bit hot that day so we didn't spend too much time outside. What is nice about the weather here is it might be hot a few days, but thankfully it cools down and you have cooler days in between! Not like Texas heat!! Thank goodness!

Well and who can leave Aidan out, he is ready and looks cool in shades!!

 This week Ryan also completed refinishing an old dresser I found, it was 80s style, wish I had taken a before pictures so you could see the difference. But I love how it turned out!! We have a bedroom set that Ryan is working on also.

The pool we look forward to enjoying!!

We started working on getting the pool ready, we thought it be simple, pull off the cover and do a little cleaning and be swimming in it. Well didn't go as planned. We have been getting some instructions from a helpful friend and also from Lee's Pool Service and found out not as easy as we thought. Ryan spent a couple hours on his days off trying to get the pool ready. He got the filter system set up and new sand put in it, started on cleaning but never got that it done. He just ran out of time, time off can't be all work and no play! Sunday I came home from church and the pool was green, I knew that wasn't right. So when Ryan got home he shocked it, well the pool is looking better today, not green but now cloudy blue. So I headed to Lee's to get some more chemicals and test kit, so today I spent a little time trying to remedy the problem. Right now it would have been cheaper to leave it covered and get a pool membership at the Country Club. It sure has been a learning process for us and we are starting to understand it better and getting the hang of it. We are becoming pool experts and I now by the time we are done, we will be! So hopefully in another week it will be ready to go!! Everyone keeps assuring us we will enjoy it, I hope, otherwise we might just have to make it into a big bomb fire!!
