What can I say, we are a pool, water, and beach family! I think we spend half of our summer in search of pools to cool off in and play in. Last year we were fortunate and were asked by friends to "pool sit" for them. I don't think they realized when they asked us just how excited we were! We were at their house so much I'm sure their neighbors thought we had moved in. Here's a quick and fun layout to use for all those summer fun pictures.
