This was the pond two summers ago. The boys needed something to keep them out of trouble so we suggested that they dig the hole for the new pond. Somewhere I have a pic of a joke they played. When the hole got bigger and deeper, they stood up a GI Joe in the bottom on the corner and sent a pic to Papa and asked if it was deep enough yet. From that distance it looked like one of them standing in the hole. No, this is not that pic.
Here is Corey again and this is how the pond and Corey looked in the spring this year. Corey is about a foot taller, 6'1" now, and the pond area is about 60' long.
This area is basically the channel connecting the deep and shallow end. You can't see the water here but you can see one of the flower areas. This is stall all a work in progress.
Here is my other grandson that helped to dig the pond. He is deep in thought here, or just relaxing watching the fish. Its the same spot where I look for anybody when I can't find them in the house. Its a quiet place to think or just watch the wildlife that enjoy the pond too. Birds, squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits can be found here just about anytime.
