This weekend was the first really hot weekend we've had in quite a while and the first really good weekend to spend in the pool. On Saturday it rained a better portion of the day but Sunday was perfect as far as sunny and hot is concerned so we headed out to the pool after church. Of course as I was trying to get the pool ready for a vacuum I managed to break one of the shut off valves in shut position. That meant I had to spend the afternoon driving to Davenport to get a replacement value and fix the pump. At least the pool was clean enough so that the kids could enjoy the pool while I was spending the afternoon running around and fixing the pump. They had a great day which I did manage to finally get in on late in the day before I spent some time fixing the value. Overall, while it wasn't an ideal day for me, the kids had a good time and got to enjoy the pool, which makes the purchase well worth it.
