Well, we have a pool. All of our children have reached an age where we don't fear having one in our backyard (we're still extremely cautious!). So with Rick home he and Trace got out and did most of the assembly. We then had friends over to help break it in. Apparently no amount of water is too small! They sat in there most of the time it took to fill it! It was actually just perfect for Paige. I bought her her own little pool since she probably won't want anything to do with this once the boys are in it!
