Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking when I had our pool installed four years ago. It causes alot of extra laundry (even though the kids have been told to hang up their towels and use them again). The fighting about who gets to use what float (even though they can both swim). Did I mention the wet floors because they don't dry off before coming in, and the cost of maintaining it? But you know after you get to play in the cool water, know you didn't have to drive anywhere, know you can wear anything you like, and lastly get great memories like these I guess it is all worth it!
