Today was a pretty good day. We did take a nice long ride to a pool store and Kevin just fell in love with one of the models that was installed. It was funny because it's actually the exact style pool that I was hoping for. Something that looks like a pond with lots of foliage (esp palm trees) and a waterfall. Assuming it's in our budget, and we'll know about that tomorrow, it will have a wheelchair ramp that will end next to a seating area that Kevin can transfer to and then just swim off. I chose not to get a hot tub because Kevin can't handle the hot water, but we will have jets in the pool around the one seating area for massage purposes. It will also have a table so he can sit in the water at the table and have a drink or even eat dinner.
I also have to get some kind of retractable awnings that can cover the bulk of the pool area because Kevin can't be in the sun for years. I can't imagine what that is going to cost, but hopefully it's affordable. If not, Kevin will just have to swim mostly at night for a while.
Anyway, Kev was really excited while there. And here are a couple of pics to show it. One is the pool that we both loved. Obviously ours would be different as we aren't having the hot tub installed:
After that, we had dinner and stopped at Wal-mart again. We keep finding things we don't have that we need to use at my mom & dad's place. I hate having to buy it all when it's already all in storage, but it will be a while before it gets here so I have no choice.
So all in all, we had a really good day today. Here's hoping for another tomorrow...
