 Since it has been getting up into the 90's here I would like to get a pool. My daughter who is three loves to swim. Should I get a pool we can all get in where she cant touch the ground to play or a small one her size where she can touch the ground but cannot really swim? I just don't want to get a big one and her not be able to really enjoy it because she will have to hold on to the side or the ladder to play.

Get the big one and get in and play with her-hold her.  Make sure to NEVER leave her alone to play in the water!

I got one that was in between. Bigger than a baby pool but not so big that the kids could not stand up in it.. It is called a lagoon pool. It's totally cute :) and I can sit in it if I need to

I have an in-ground pool and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course you never leave your child unattended and make sure there is a SECURE fence that she can't climb around it.

You will all love a pool you can get into!

I would get one ya'll could get in but I wouldn't get a real deep one.  Intex makes an easy set pool that is 10 feet across and only 30 inches deep.  They also make one that is 12 feet across and 30 inches deep.  I love these pools because they are easy to set up, have a pump, and can be taken down when the weather gets cooler.

 She loves my uncles in ground pool. She would talk about wanting to go all the time while it was still too cool. I was thinking of one of those above ground pools from walmart since they are not that expensive.

This. And maybe think about putting a fence around it so she can't accidentally get to the pool and fall in.

I also think she liked his pool because they had the plastic steps she could sit on to play. She would swim all over that pool though. This is why I am so torn!
