The kids have been cooped up for a while, stranded at home with parents who just want to rest. John had to go to work the other day and I was feeling a little better so when Aaron said, "mom, could we PLEASE go do something fun?" I couldn't resist. There is this park near our house called Discovery Park that the kids like to go to. It's got a huge playground area, sand pit, and a skate park where Aaron likes to watch. He told me next time we go we have to bring his scooter. I would love to see that!
I had heard there was a splash pad there too but it's never been on when we've gone before. Now that the weather is so warm I figured we would give it a shot. So swimsuits on we loaded up and headed over. The splash pad was on and the kids LOVED it! We even ran into a friend of mine from up the street and her daughter. There was a "creek" they could wade in and a water spicket in the sand pit. The boys kept themselves entertained for two hours! We brought our lunch so it basically went like this: splash pad, playground, splash pad, lunch, creek, splash pad, sand pit, splash pad. I brought a change of clothes but they never wanted to change out of their suits. I love me some free entertainment!
