During their first trip, they were tasked with helping us to empty our container which arrived on Easter Sunday. Their second, during the summer months, was a little bit of a wash out weather-wise and they didn’t really make it to the pool, shocking, I know. And, their third trip, this time last year, was a short one before we all headed off to the bright lights and neon signs of Las Vegas!
