Tequila, Vomit, and Broken Glass on the Pool Deck—Wea’ve Written Weekly

Nothing says freedom like a bottomless pitcher of margaritas.

Nothing says freedom like grilling by the pool.

Nothing says freedom like Freedom Pools cascade color.

.

Nothing says freedom like a fourth of July family backyard pool party cookout.

Nothing says freedom like drunk parents and kids in the pool.

Nothing says freedom like a bottomless pitcher of margaritas.

.

Nothing says freedom like burgers cooking on the grill.

Nothing says freedom like tequila straight from the bottle.

Nothing says freedom like grilling by the pool.

.

Nothing says freedom like a drunken family pool party.

Nothing says freedom like a child floating face down.

Nothing says freedom like Freedom Pools cascade color.
