California meets Canada

I'd like to tell you a cautionary tale about a girl from California who went to BYU and married someone from far away, eventually settling near her husband's family in Canada. But I can't, because it has a happy ending: an outdoor pool in her yard just like she always wanted!

With a Canadian twist.

Our friends just finished their pool a month ago - it's wonderful until it's time to get out! Yesterday instead of swimming I huddled in a blanket beside the pool and watched the kids have a crazy snowball fight (until someone took it in the eye).

Carmen took it as well as she gave it.

She changes the meaning of 'throw like a girl'.

Chloe was right in there to.
(I think this snowball melted a little while she was waiting for a target to surface.)

I don't know why the craziest things are always the most fun!

Is the pool heated like a hot tub, or just heated like a swimming pool?

Sometimes a warm pool in the cold is better than a pool in the heat. Ha. Who am I kidding. Nothing beats a pool in the summertime, but I hear they have that up in Canada :). Enjoy the pool! I'm a little jealous. I've always wanted one.

Mid-way between pool and hot tub.

Oh, my gosh, that looks like fun! I love, love sitting in a hot tub--or pool--while it is snowing outside. (Yeah, that getting out of the tub part is always a problem) We have snow on the if only I had a hot tub.
