We have avoided pool parties at home (or having too many kids at one time) it is just too much responsibility. Our kids have had at least 5 years of swimming lessons so we know they can swim but you never know about other peoples kids. But squid just wanted a pool party at home with a sleepover and at a weak moment I agreed. I was trying to talk her into having one at the new Aquatic Centre (which as it turned out would have been less expensive and less tiring) but no she wanted it at home.
The weather was just about perfect and the kids all had a great time and they even slept a bit thanks to swimming, the slippery slide on the front lawn, a few party games rounded off with a video.
I don't think we will be doing the home party again for a while at least the adults just aren't up to it.
