I finally bought another pool after I said never I would again because the dogs always chew it up and they are generally a huge hassle... but the kids broke me down, and I'm glad they did. They are having sooo much fun out there. And THIS time I put it on the front patio where the dogs can't get to it. I mean, we're out in front of all the neighbors, but who cares... Kids splashing in a pool is a beautiful summer inspiration!
