Last year, instead of going on a vacation, we decided to purchase the pool. So many times you spend hours, planning, packing, traveling to a vacation site and everyone's favorite part is the pool at the hotel. So we decided that we would just vacation at home and put a pool in the back yard. Let me just say that it was one of the best vacations. I loved it. I always knew where things were and I never got lost trying to find Wal-Mart or McDonalds!!!
