  • I always had a pool in our backyard growing up. We just moved from my dad's house so my kids spent their entire summer in the pool in previous years (4' deep permanent above ground pool...that we've had since I was 11--that would be 23 years).
    We don't have a pool here but I'll probably be getting a kiddie pool for the baby and my 5yo to play in. The neighbor says she has a pool and the kids are welcome to come over and swim.

  • We have a small baby pool and a sprinkler for my son. It's plenty enough for him.

  • We have an Olympic size neighborhood pool that almost nobody in our subdivision uses, so we use it all the time! We also get a small kiddie pool for the back and we have some really cool sprinkler toys.

  • we have both, and this year we are buying a big water slide for them, I can't wait to play on it myself.

  • This year my kiddos got what I consider to be a decent size pool to play in.  It's not huge but big enough for them to actually be able to swim in.  I'm happy with it so far.  :)

  • I live in Fl and while I don't have a pool, half the people I know do so we can go swimming anytime so a sprinkler just doesn't cut it

  • we have ants in the yard so we cant play with the sprinkler when my son get here so were probably gonna have to buy a baby pool which wouldn't be so bad if they made them where they could regulate water temp LOL
