So I feel the need to clarify a bit exactly what a pool day looks like for us. For starters, it is a day, not a few hours. We start in the morning and try to finish up before dinner, but it's really only worth doing if you have a long stretch of time to enjoy it.
And our beach chairs do not have to wait for a week at the beach to be called into action.
At this point, I'm sure you probably have a few questions, so I'll answer those real quick:
No, no children.
This is our fourth summer with the pool.
The neighbors are pretty used to it by now. They don't even stare anymore.
My favorite part are the directions printed on the side of the pool that say helpful things like "do not use this pool in a large body of water" and "absolutely no diving".
I guess I'll have to find somewhere else to practice my forward pike.
