I thought it would be fun for the kids to swim in the winter…

so…Dusty & Danny started shoveling, sweeping, breaking ice, shoveling, sweeping, breaking ice, shoveling, sweeping, and once again shoveling snow OFF the pool yesterday. They then had to unfreeze a hose by running hot water through it for about an hour, work some magic to get the pump/heater running and then 24+ hours later the pool heated from a cold 49 degrees to a very toasty 99 degrees.

This is going to be a BIG post, I have lots of pictures and I know we didn’t have many cameras there today…including mine. My pictures are from Janette Duckworth & Shannon Taylor’s cameras, thank you! I know that many people/families plan on copying these.

As far as the tubing goes, it was a blast and a beautiful day! Thank you to everyone who went – we love you all!
