Splash Pad

We have been trying to make it to the splash pad for about three weeks, but due to accidents, illness, and storms, we haven't had a chance to get there! We made plans to try again tonight and it wasn't looking good when a storm began rolling in. Luckily, it passed through quickly and we were able to head out for the first time this summer. After a wonderful dinner with our good friends, we packed up the kids and headed out to the newest splash pad in our town. Here a a few (yeah, right) pictures of our evening.

Emma and her BFF, Matthew

The splash pad has these overhead buckets that fill up and then dump water periodically. Emma was too busy filling her buckets to notice them, so Andy ventured into the water to show her what it was all about. She got pretty hammered from one bucket and wasn't too impressed.

Sweet Sophia napped while we were there, so she didn't get to splash around, but she did wake up in time to watch Emma and Matthew play in the park.

My kids are terrified of splash pads, I still keep trying to get them to try them out though. Looks like your kids had a great time!

She is a little more intimidated by the kind that have water shooting from all directions, but this new one only has water coming from the ground (with the exception of the overhead buckets! LOL!). She seemed to like it a lot better and didn't even hesitate like she has in the past.
