Our last fishing trip for a long time

Well we had to go fishing one more time before they all move away. It was great again with Kora and Jakob catching 5 each. Then Miah wanted to give it a try and he catch his first fish ever. He was so excited. We rebaited his hook and he caught another one. Kora helped him get it off his hook. Way to go Miah.

Another update on pool

Well they have finished the grotto, tile, and are ready for the decking to be poured. Notice the big palm tree. I found it on Craigslist list and we picked it up from Fort Worth. It is 15 years old and nine feet tall. The water slide also has arrived. It is called the Turbo Twister. Looks like it will be fun. It will placed behind the grotto.

Another Good Fishing day

Well the kids wanted to go fishing again in the pond behind our house so off we went. They caught around 15 fish total and here are some of the little catfish they caught. Both Jakob and Kora caught their catfish without any bait. It was blast. When were first arrived there was this big frog sitting on the edge.

We are putting in a pool.

Ok I told the family that I would show pictures of the construction of our new pool so here I go with the first pictures. I took these pictures from our upstairs deck. It is a 16X33 size pool with a slide and grotto. The cut out in the middle of the pool is where the grotto will be. A grotto is a waterfall with a cave underneath with a bench to sit down on. Looks like this.Here are some of the first pictures of our hole in the ground. I will keep posting pictures as they move along.
