the big guns were here yesterday

yesterday was a happy day here at the house. our pool was dug. it's been a long wait. things were delayed by 2 weeks because of rain. yes, it rains in texas. even though i was beyond excited for the start of the pool build, i almost hyperventilated when this large creature showed up in the backyard.
the first swipe.
and another...

it was a little scary watching the huge backhoe so close to the back of our house. thankfully the operator had steady hands.

then they brought in the dumptruck.
our supervisor was on hand to survey their work.

and in about 4 hours time, they left us with this.
which will soon turn into this.
but in the meantime, it's become the neighborhood trash dump as trash from neighboring construction sites have swirled into our backyard and found the bottom of the pool.

OMG that is so exciting that the construction is starting, but crazy to see such a big piece of equipment in the your yard I'm sure! Can't wait to see all the progress pictures!
