My Parent's Pool
My parents got this pool the summer my baby sister turned one year old. So, I was almost nine years old. I spent every summer there growing up. We never took fancy vacations when I was at home. I never ventured more than one state away in any direction until I was in college. The pool was our vacation each year. I learned how to care for the pool as I grew up. Chlorinating and vacuuming the pool became my job, and I still remember how to do all that.
Mom and Dad had to replace the liner after the pool hadn't been used for a few years (after I got married). My kids have been able to enjoy the pool for a few summers now. I enjoy seeing them play together where my brother, sister, and I used to play. I wish I knew where the picture of the three of us in a blow up tire was; I would have to scan that and post the picture here.
