My kids are sad to see it go but they know it's time.  For the past decade we have had a pool in our backyard, nothing fancy just a nice place to jump in and cool off.  This year we, meaning me, decided that we were done with the pool.  

 

The way I look at is, when it was new we used it daily, now that the kids are older we are using the pool less and less, last year I counted five times that is was used!  Five times, during the three and a half months it was open.

Not enough in my book to keep it open.  I decided that it should go to a home that will use it more than we did and do something else with that area that the pool took up in our backyard, I'm thinking a 'Man Cave' type of room.
