Record number of hours spent in the pool

I sure hope your family has had a wonderful holiday weekend. This year, we could not get home so our 4th was very low key.

Friday was spent at the pool. Six hours to be exact. We came in to grill steaks and hotdogs and they were so good. Chad used a secret marinade and it was incredible.

The man of this house decided at the very last minute that we would go to the Mall of GA and see the fireworks. I'm so glad he did. It was a great show and we had a blast. By the time we got home it was almost 11:00 and the girls were exhausted. They slept until 9:00 this morning. (my girls are usually up and going before 7:00)

Chad and a couple of guys in the neighborhood did some of the lawn work around the pool this morning. After they were done, we spent another 5 hours in the water. It was heavenly. It was great to see everyone out and working together to make a difference in our little neighborhood.

We started adding up the time we have spent at the pool since Thursday and it was something like 17 hours. So this evening we are all a little pink, completely worn out but we feel full. We spent some concentrated time working on relationships here and that is a very good thing.

Sunday will truly be a day of worship and then R.E.S.T. NO pool for this family!!! Sunday afternoon naps will be mandatory!!

All three of us had great naps today- and we didn't even spend 17 hours in the pool! Glad you had a weekend full of quality time!
