Pool Update- Sod Removal and Pool Colors!

More pool update!

The pool company sent their sod-remover to do the first step....removing sod. lol

We weren't sure how we were going to get all that slab to the dump? Well, he solved that problem for us! Yes!  He took the slab for his dump truck. What a life saver - and that little bobcat thingy?? That's so much easier than us picking it up and putting it in the back of Ron's truck. It took him like 5 minutes to get rid of all that slab.

Then it was time for him to get digging on the sod.  The girls and I left for the beach at this point, so we didn't get to see the magic happen.

But when we came home, this is what our backyard looks like.

Remember that little problem I have with keeping my house clean???


Now there's a BIG dirt backyard...and 2 kids and 2 dogs to bring the dirt back in my house. Awesome.

Oh's for the greater good, right!?

Also on this day, we went back up to the pool place to pick out our "colors."

It's really hard to see the actual colors, but the tile I picked was something like "Island tile" which was fitting because the whole time, I was saying "I really want the blue to pop like the Caribbean colors. I want to feel like the water is a whole kind of get-away."

The bottom of the pool is called "Miami Blue." The speckles in the finish are sapphire like the water-line tile. It's going to be so blue! I love it! I can't wait!

Today they came out to measure and "draw" the pool. Brooklynn pulled herself up a chair and watched them. ha!

You can see the orange spray on the ground. That's the pool outline. And the wood is where the patio is going to be.

Since we have small kids, we decided it was best to fence off the back door because there are a lot of metal stakes sticking out of the ground. So now all the dogs have to go out front. 

Bright side? At least the dirt won't be coming in through the house!

Monday they are coming to dig for the actual pool!
