Pond Filters


As many of you know we are a military family.  Part of being a military family means we move around often.... quite often.
Every three years or so. (Unless something comes up like deployment and you get stuck at Fort Wainwright, Alaska for that extra year.... and by year I mean two)
But with that in mind, David and I often talk about how we want our house to be when he retires and when we buy land and build a house.
I have no doubt that it will be an amazing house! David's beyond obsessed with secret passageways and hidden doors and stuff like that. He is a giant a kid at heart, it's pretty funny at times (there are times when it is a bit less funny but that isn't the point today)!

Anyway, we know that when we do build our own house, we want a huge, gorgeous back yard and a pond full of fish and to be able take the grandchildren (that is SO weird to even say or think about since our oldest is only five) fishing and have a pond for the dogs to drink out of, etc etc etc.

I had no idea how much upkeep something that seems so simple, like a pond could be! Like finding the right pond filter to help us out-would you have ever thought of such a thing?! Me neither! I'm very thankful for the ability to browse the internet and look into all of the stuff you would need for something that seems so simple.

But in reality,  wouldn't it just be amazing to sit on your back porch on a nice spring or summer day and watch your husband, your son and your grandson out there bonding while you enjoy a nice glass of sweet tea?! It really does sound like such a nice afternoon.  I used to worry about our future but with images like that, I worry a little less and smile a little more.

That picture you describe of sitting on a porch with sweet tea sounds pretty darn fantastic!

Hope you've had a wonderful weekend :)

This post made me smile =) I hope you and David get your house and pond! My grandpa built a small pond in his back yard- corner of the patio, super small. But it had a water fall and I loved it.

Pretty cute post! I am with David on the whole secret passageways and hidden doors. If I ever had kids I want a wardrobe that leads to a Narnia room.
