a facelift

These fellas showed up and it made my day!
 They tugged and pulled and got the cover off.
 
Here is the beauty that is created throughout the winter.
 They siphon all of the water out...
and save it in these here containers.
 Ah yes, the mudge sludge.
 When it's all emptied out, they take down the old liner like it's wallpaper.
I guess that's what it is essentially.
And they start to level out the sand beneath the cover.

How gross are those walls? We have so much iron in the ground to contend with.
 They pulled the new liner out and it looked like one big, giant tablecloth.
They had that entire job done from start to finish in about 4 hours.
Mellie, Jillian, and Maddie felt like walking on sunshine.
I can only surmise that they were imagining themselves swimming in the "new" pool someday soon.
I would have spanked their bottoms if I had caught them. Ha!
We have been in the pool 3 or 4 times already since we got a new facelift and I look forward to many more bright swim days to come.

We could have used a pool here this weekend-it has been so humid already. Very strange for North Jersey in May.

I have never seen that before. We don't have pools here in Wisconsin but I sure would love one!
