    The last pic I posted of eggs have hatched and are coming along! Hopefully my last set of babies! I can’t believe these eggs survived all the chemicals!

    245C0A00-B02A-4E0C-A9CE-EC0BC4EA8E8C.jpeg So we found our first casualty in the skimmer before we left for vaca. Looked to be a leopard, but was kind of hard to tell. So I insisted on buying this little contraption. But now these frisky little tree frogs are using it as a baby making island!! Lolol

    Ps. @Maro2Bear no dolphins spotted yet. Lol. But the water level in my tadpole tanks on the deck doubled while I was gone!

    The newest adventure... this little guy was stuck in a window well for the basement that’s under our deck. He must not have been able to get back out so he was chewing away at the window ledge and broke the window.

    Please don’t put that many chemicals in that gross water!!!! Drain and scrub and start over, have a pool company look at it after scrubbing and consider converting to saltwater, our pool is 10 years old and the plaster is like new, hubby hardly has any maintenance, go to for run called Trouble Free pools or something Like that and they will hive you best advice and save a lot of money!

    The white is calcium buildup.

    The white poles are pool coolers, the water gets too hot to be refreshing so we run pool pump at night and the water sprays in the air and cools

    It's coming along nicely.
    And that's a great looking yard.
