    Party time

    Not sure if I'm in the right spot or not. Using tapatalk which I'm not too familiar with. If not, just delete. Just wanted to show off my pool ready for the holiday weekend!!

    It's a little bit of a drive, but when does the party start?

    First thing that comes to mind is that walkway that looks like a ramp to your pool ... or for my teenage boys, WOULD be made into a ramp to launch themselves into the air for a "cannonball". Enjoy your weekend.

    Thanks JamesR...still a work in progress. We replaced the deck a couple of months ago. It was in worse shape than the fence. We will be pressure washing the fence in the next few weeks and staining both. I wouldn't mind having a few less trees that are really a challenge.

    Nice! Hope you have good weather for your pool party. Looks like our first pool party will have to wait until sometime in June. Supposed to be a washout in DFW this weekend.
