I had that as a kid. I didn't realise back then how lucky we were, but it was one of the best memories I have of my childhood. They're were 3 of us the same age all with 3 brothers/sisters of all ages- we all had pools and we would climb fences and get into the other ones pool, back over and around. We used to play cricket and soccer on the street out the front. If anyone saw a car- they'd yell "CAR" and we would grab the ball and move to the side, when the car passed- we resumed playing. Our street was pretty quiet though.
I'd love for my son to have had this experience. Nothing like it. My childhood neighbours are still our best friends.
