Summertime Celebrations in the Backyard Swimming Pool

There are a few things that most people look forward to during the summer. For kids, being free from homework, early bedtimes and alarm clocks are definitely a few of them. Just this morning, my 8 year old daughter asked, "Mom, why do grown-ups still have to work over the summer when we kids are off?" EXACTLY!!! One day, she will understand, but there are a few things that I still look forward to during the summer as a "grown-up" and those are the 3 big holidays of summer: Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. 

Of course, we here in the pool industry signal Memorial Day as the start of the summer, 4th of July as the middle and Labor Day as the unfortunate end. Why do we celebrate? Of course, we want to honor and remember those that have served our country to give us the rights to our freedom. The way we typically do that is to surround ourselves with family and friends while adding in some food and fun! Need ideas? You've come to the right place!

The backyard swimming pool is the perfect place to throw a holiday celebration. Plan your menu, fire up the grill and invite a few friends to hang out. Not sure how to keep the kids entertained? Check out some of our many pool games that will keep young and old alike occupied for hours! Decorations can be simple - just keep the food coming and the tunes going!
