Nothing says we need a pool membership like a 90+ degree June day. So we did. We joined our very local pool. We don't even have to drive to get there and snacks are cheap there.I've been researching pools today. The nicest option is a 30 minute drive from where we live and the pool is pristine there. We've also been tossing around the idea of getting an above ground pool. They are only $150 at Wal-Mart.
