Since we moved to Kansas two years ago we've come to find out that every neighborhood has their own pool. Upkeep is built into the association dues and they are so outrageous I've been determined that by God we're going to use that damn pool till I feel our rates are justified.
So we've been there every day our schedule allows.
I guess neighborhood pools keep the homicide rate down. I don't know. I've never seen so many pools till I moved here. Either way, our pool is within walking distance of our house so its easy for us to spend a lot of time there. But we've spent so much time there the kids are sick of it.
And going to this other pool was like we were cheating on our own pool. And to be frank, I want to start a love affair with this one. A dirty piece of work that would be but this thing was HOT. It had cool water dumping things, life guards, more water dumping things with wheels and tons of other things. Did I mention life guards?!? And there was another little pool that was nothing but water and only went to four feet deep. Then there was a wave pool specifically designed for tots. There was a water slide as well.
See, it was a thing of beauty. Worthy of my love.
This new pool shits all over our pool. Look at that thing. Our pool is a basic hole in the ground with a baby hole off to the side. I'm embarrassed to show you pictures. But this thing? This thing?? A thing of beauty. Pictures do not do it justice.
Again, worthy of my love.
But since it costs $36 admission for the day, plus food, drinks and snacks which was about another $36, it was a one shot deal. I don't care how swank this thing is/was I'm not going broke over a pool.
|Coolest pool ever.|
And the kids loved it.
I about crapped my pants several times loosing them in the water structures, having visions of them floating top-side before I could get to them. Nothing like that happened of course but I guess that's precisely why it didn't. I can't imagine bringing my kids to the pool and even thinking of:
- sitting down
- enjoying a good book
- texting till my fingers were numb
