Happy Birthday Cindy

Today is Cindy's birthday and our Daughter Melissa the Doctor, and her fiance spent the weekend with us, Mike the fiance is a self proclaimed BBQ grillmaster and this was their birthday gift for Cindy, to have a pool party and cookout on Sunday (the day before the actual birthday because they have to work on Monday).

I have a grill with a spare bottle of propane, so a cookout is dooable, but we have no pool aka poolio as Val one of  our fine friends refers to hers, don't even have a wading pool, but this didn't stop Melissa and Mike from planning it anyways.

Melissa broke the news that she was having a pool installed for her Mom, we have never had a pool before so this was kind of exciting, Cindy got out her bathing suit just in case Melissa wasn't kidding, and low and behold Cindy got to use her suit yesterday.

The pool was installed in a flash, it's pretty impressive how fast a pool can go up, especially a mini poolio but what did you expect from a new Doctor with student loans and all that other stuff, main thing is now when it's hot Mama can lounge in the pool, they even threw in the noodler to keep us out of trouble.

Mike cooked up ribs, chicken, and salmon, artichokes, potatoes, and corn, they even stopped by Coldstone and picked up an ice cream cake with Happy Birthday Mom on it, this made Cindy happy and what made her even happier was that they cleaned up the mess afterwards.

A few of Cindy's cousins got the word there was a Party going on for Cindy, and there was going to be water, water to swim in that is, the Doctor also provided wine and beer for medicinal purposes that is, I guess she can do that now since she is all grown up and has a degree and everything,
and of course we had water and tea to drink for those of us who didn't need much medicine.

WTB is what Mike called it, White Trash Birthday but that's OK it was a lot of fun anyway.

Happy Birthday Cindy, I Love You.

  1. I found a pool like that for about twenty bucks once. Ended up not having an electrical outlet outside (should of thought about it) for the filter and since we lived on city water I didn't want to waste that many gallons for nothing.

    I ended up giving it to my brother who got a whole bunch of tadpoles in his

    1. Hi Adam, sounds like the same pool, only difference is this one has all the attachments but no pump,but it sure is nice to cool off in.

      I can just see a bunch of tadpoles in one.

  9. Happy Birthday Cindy. At first I thought that was a one person pool but nice to see there is room for two to soak, sun and float. Cool gift.

    1. Hey Patti, at one time yesterday Cindy, Melissa, and Mike were all three in there together so it's bigger than it looks, a really nice gift especially with the heat we have been having.

  13. That sounds like the best birthday ever! It looks so refreshing.

    Let the record show that the Original Poolio was JUST LIKE THAT, only about 4 times bigger. I think we had him for two years until we went for the other kind of above-ground pool.

    1. Hey Val, I was really happy with the day they planned for Cindy, it was really great to see Melissa kicked back in the pool spending time with her Mom, that was the best.

      So as far as mini poolio goes it could possibly grow into a big poolio like yours did? That is really good to know....thanks for loaning me the term for this post.

    1. Hey River, come on over I bet we could come up with something you could splash around in, I'm afraid it may be after dark before you got back home for sure, so you just may have to stay over :)

      The daughter does surprise us at times.

  17. Happy Birthday Cindy!
    All you need is some cool water to stretch you legs out in. Now, which end are you going to put the diving board?

    1. Hey Lisa, thank you my friend, yes cooling off is the main reason for going in but the dilemma is figuring out where to put that diving board ha ha.

  19. Belated Happy Birthday wishes to Cindy! Given the hot weather we seem condemned to endure this summer maybe we should all go buy a pool.

  20. I need to be in that pool right now, and Happy Birthday to Cindy! Looks like you guys had such a fun and exciting time. There's no better gift than having your child and fiance to clean up all the stuff after a party. That's pretty cool! Hugs...RO
