Meet the new Plant Manager for Paramount Pool & Spa Systems!!!

"Paramount Pool & Spa Systems was founded in 1964 by George Ghiz. Having been in the pool business since 1958, George decided it was time to start a company that was solely for the purposes of research and development, manufacturing and distribution of state-of-the-art pool products. Paramout Pool & Spa Systems has become one of the world's leading in-floor manufactuers.

All Paramout products are designed to make your pool experience the most carefree and enjoyable experience possible. Our cleaning and circulation systems will deliver superior results, while paying for themselves over the lifetime of the pool..." (source)

Basically Nick is incharge of the ENTIRE manufacturing plant and its employees! This is a big career move! Last weekend I went to visit Nick at work, and from what I could tell he has his work cut out for him! This place needs all the attention, organization, and professional knowledge Nick has to offer! They are lucky to have him!

Let Freedom Ring

This Fourth of July we had some friends over for a BBQ and water fun in our backyard!
(Mindy & Sophia)

Nick BBQ'd some yummy sliders and sweet corn on the cobb and Josalyn and Mindy brought yummy snacks! The kids played on the Slip N' Slide, and blow up pool!



Even the babies joined in on the fun!

(Mindy, Sophia, Landon, Delaney, Jordan)

I love goofy pictures and kids being kids!

We walked to the park close to our house and watched the fireworks show by Peoria Sports Complex! While we waited for the fireworks the kiddos played with poppers. They had a blast!


Next year I really hope we have a pool!! Fingers crossed!!

Happy Birthday America!!!

Peter Piper is not just for KIDS

Recently we went to Kierstin's birthday party at Peter Piper Pizza. I personally HATE their pizza! I think it tastes like cardbord but the kiddos seem to like the games. When we arrived the birthday girl was all smiles and ready for her party!

Rob gave all the kids a small cup with tokens. (THE KIDS NICK!) I gave the cup to Nick, he and Landon ran off to have some fun before the pizza was done.

The pizza came to the table and I went to find my husband here...

The rest of the party finished their pizza and Kierstin started to open presents.

-Nick was STILL here...

This is what he was after...!

$40 later, he never got his beloved prize. Lesson learned! Nick is no longer in charge of the tokens at Peter Piper Pizza and is currently attending PPPA (Peter Piper Pizza Anonymous) meetings!

We had a great time at the party and I think Kierstin had a great birthday!
