    Our show will air April 19th

    We just found out officially that our episode of Groundbreakers will air next Saturday April 19th at 9am ET on HGTV. This was discussed in an earlier TFP newsletter and follows the build. Hope you get a chance to watch.

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    I jsut found out my wife has decided to make the viewing a party and has invited friends and neighbors. As we have not even seen the show yet, it should be interesting to get the instant reaction.

    Well, we still live in the dark ages of tv recording, with a DVD-R, and could we find a blank disc? Nope. So my family watched while I was out, and said it was truly the most gorgeous pool area they had ever seen!!

    That was great. That is quite a pool. The pictures did not do justice to the full scope or size of the pool.

    I liked your daughters idea for a slide. You could roll right out of bed and glide into the pool.

    PS - for those of you who missed the showing, it will probably air again later in the week. Also, you can read the article about the experience in the January issue of the newsletter:

    What a beautiful oasis.

    My fav part is the swim-up bar and pavillion.

    Happy swimming....
