While David was anxiously awaiting the issuing of my parents' pool permit so that the pool contractor could start excavating, he got a little antsy. In response to that antsy-ness, my dad suggested to David that he help out by starting to dig out the pool area so that the work could go faster once the permit came through...little did he know what he was about to unleash!!! David promptly set to work and spent hours -- literally -- digging in the staked-out pool area.
Thankfully, the permit came through just in time and we were able to watch it excavated before we headed home. Here are Abigail and her great-grandpa watching the work.
