A Splashing Good Time

Not only did we get to see our friends and Grandma Norma on a recent warm summer day but we got to get all wet too...and the best part? It was FREE! I just love an inexpensive outing that gets us outside and ER running around. We'd never been to this spray zone before, located in the civic center of the town next to where Brad grew up.It's very impressive with a few inches of water to splash around in and lots of sprayers lining the circular spray zone. There are more concentrated right in one area for kids who want non stop water fun.

ER was content to jump and kick around for most of the time. Filling our bucket up with water from the sprayers was another big hit.The biggest hit for the mommies along? The shade covered tables and chairs all around, so we could sit and be close enough to watch the action and stay dry ourselves. The girls ever so thoughfully picked sprayers right in front us to play at.

It was nice to relax a bit ourselves☺ We had a quick bite to eat together and came home in time to beat the commuter traffic. It was a perfect summer outing.

That looks like a nice spray park. We went to one that was way too much water gushing and fountains unexpectedly shooting out water - freaked the girls out!

That looks like such a wonderful afternoon outing. ER looks like she had a great time, and it's important for the moms to have a little down time too. How perfect!!
