Last year Cricket was lamenting not having her pool on May 23rd, and then on May 26th it finally opened. We’ve had some warm days lately – even up to 80 degrees – and I was thinking it was feeling like time for the pool already! I was surprised when looking back to see it was not until the end of May that we got the pool out last year.
80’s is unusually warm for April, that’s for sure, so who knows when we might actually get the pool out this year. We are looking forward to lots of action when we do though. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from our opening days last year.
Of course, it will not be quite the same without the whole trio of pool lovers. Cricket and Luke are managing without their sister Sheba and I guess they will figure it out. It probably bothers me more than it does them.
My other concern is how Cricket will do with jumping in and out of the pool. She’s been so much better as far as her arthritis lately and I want to be sure that continues. I wonder if some kind of step there might at least make it easier for her to get out? Though she never goes in the same way twice, so it would probably have to be a deck all the way around. We’ll have some time to consider that I’m sure, because those warm days will probably be few and far between for a while, but stay tuned for new fun coming soon!
