As a child, I enjoyed playing outside almost daily. I liked playing basketball, softball, and volleyball. I also enjoyed splashing around in my neighbor’s pool. I grew up in the southern United States where the temperature often soars to over 100 degrees during the summer months. Cooling off in my neighbor’s pool was a treat during the hot weather months. Now that my husband and I are planning to start a family soon, I would like to install a pool in our backyard. I want my kids to enjoy swimming in a cool refreshing pool during the summer as much as I used to enjoy it. On this blog, you will discover how to shop for the perfect pool for a growing family.
