Ocean or Pool?
Do you have a pool at your house/apt complex?
Do you lay out or jump in the water?

I love the Ocean but since I live atleast 8 hours away from the ocean, I prefer the pool.
We are planning on trying to put in a pool this fall if we can afford it. For now we go to my parent's house and use their pool.
I normally either sit under the umbrella or just jump in the pool. I don't usually lay out in the sun.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Ocean or Pool? I prefer the ocean. I'm allergic to chlorine.

Do you lay out or jump in the water? Both but I always have to read a book while laying out.

I prefer the ocean it's about 15 minutes away! We don't have a pool but my dad does and we go swimming there a lot. I like laying out but haven't really done it since I had kids because I'm always tending to them lol. I also enjoy going in the water.

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

I'm not a fan of the ocean (too big) so I like pools, especially the one at our house. I am allergic to the sun and break out in hives after a few minutes outside so I don't lay out!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

I'm not a big fan of either but if I had to pick, I'd go with the ocean. Ocean usually means I'm on vacation and there's a fruity drink nearby. (I live near the Pacific Ocean but it's cooooolllldddd here in NorCal!)

I LOVE the ocean. We are 6 hours away though. Plus it's the dirty gulf of Mexico. I prefer cleaner water. I think I like hanging at the beach in general more so than getting in the water.

We don't own a pool. I am not really in to pool swimming anymore. I only do it now for the boys enjoyment. I would never want to live in a house with one. I would be too paranoid of one of the boys drowning. But drowning is a big sometimes irrational fear I have about them anyway.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

Well, seeing as I'm from Minnesota, and we are the land of 10,000 lakes...I would have to say I prefer a Lake. We live about 5 minutes away from lakes in all directions and about 10 minutes away from Lake Superior. We camp a lot too so we spend a lot of time in the water and sun. We camp at lakes and campgrounds with pools as well. My son (he will be 4 in August) loves to swim in anything...lake/pool. We are days away from an Ocean...so, he's never been in the Ocean.

We don't have a pool, would love to get one someday...but for now, we'll settle for our many lakes nearby.

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*
