A Birthday & A Pool

We (mostly) finished the pond in time for Ella’s birthday party last weekend – hooray!  She wanted to start her day with birthday waffles, which is frankly a great idea.  A lot of friends and family joined us to celebrate, and we had lovely weather.  It was awesome, and exhausting.  I think it’s been too long since we’ve thrown a party – we’re totally out of the habit.

We still have finishing touches to add to the pond – plants, the pump and skimmer, the water-heating setup for the hot tub (yeah!).  But the major, back-breaking work is done, and we’ve gone swimming almost every day.  Feeling very very lucky.

    Happy Happy Birthday!! What a big girl she’s getting to be. :)
    Luck you, with a pond! That is also on our to-do list, we had hoped for this spring but it just isn’t happening. Soon though, and then perhaps ducks or geese!
    Enjoy your beautiful pond!

    Thanks Melanie. We wanted a pond for a long time before it really happened, so I’m sure yours will when the time is right :)
    Blessings,
