This word brings visions of summer fun to my mind. When I was a child we had a swimming pool in our backyard. Because of this my brother, sister and I were the most popular kids on the block. Only problem was our parents were very strict about letting us invite our friends over to swim. One time the neighbor kids sneaked into our backyard while we were gone and they were caught in our pool when we arrived back home. My dad was livid and the kids never did that again.
