Fun on the Splash Pad!!!

It seems like it has been forever since I have last posted, I'm sure my family will agree with me. This week has been super crazy! Josh left on Sunday to go to Mexico with other members of our church on a missions trip. He will not return until next Tuesday, that's ten days without him here and I am slowly going crazy. The kiddos miss him and of course I do to. I am glad he was able to go, he was really looking forward to this trip and we just hope he returns safely. It will be nice to have him home, so he can have a turn spanking the children. Ha-Ha!!
I took the kids to the YMCA splash pad last week. They loved this!!!! I was again surprised how Lily ran and played in the water, this kind of thing usually has her sitting by my side and watching. But there weren't that many children there so she enjoyed herself. This would be a fun thing to do during the long, hot summer days, but when school is out this little area gets pretty busy. I'm sure we'll give it a try again sometime and hope we go on a slow day. :)


Lily and Cooper were obsessed with pushing the button to make the water go, even when it was already spraying.
Brrrr...that water is COLD!
Lily liked to step on this little water sprout!
The kiddos loved sitting inside this water bubble. They thought they were pretty cool.
My cute little man!

Lily also loved to run through the "rain"!

I love that we have one of these in O-town now!! Both of my kiddos would probably go everyday if I'd let them!

Looks like fun, even I would like it. Too bad you have to go out in public in a bathing suit to enjoy it:)

What a fun water park! I wish we had one of those out here. Lily looks so much like you in that last photo, I remember getting that expression from you a lot back in the day. I don't quite remember what exactly for, but I remember it clearly. BTW that water "bubble" photo is awesome.

Oh, what fun! It would be nice to have something like that around here. Even though Sadie's not quite walking yet, she sure enjoys water and would LOVE that! Have fun this summer and we'll be praying for Josh and the rest of the crew to have a safe return!
