Swimming Pool

For the past three years we have put up a swimming pool. 
And every fall we wonder if it was worth it? 
Usually the end of May we have some warm days and we put our pool up.. June came and rain came and the weather never got hot...so this is what our pool looked like the end of June...

 But then...we had A hot day... so we set that pool up!

After set up we have to let it warm up... pool temperature was 11C..
then the rains came and the floods came... 
The 3 days it didn't rain we were away... We had 11 days of rain... 
days of checking the pool, running the filter...and we wonder 
WHY DO WE DO THIS?!?!?!
Then....
The pool is a balmy 22 C. The sun is out and oh how relaxing!
The kids come over and make memories...

We have a splashing time!... even if its only a few times during the season.... 
Makes us think all that work is worth it!
