What do you get when you combine 3 napless toddlers and a trip to the park?
See answer below:
Tia Kristie pointed us to a great little park that had lots of shade, a play structure and a children's wading pool (with a mushroom waterfall). Best thing...it's FREE!!! So us big kids got calf-deep in this cold water, while the tots had fun splashing and daring the waterfall. I would assume the water is so cold because of the constant need to replenish the water - who knows what gifts other swimmie diapers have left behind. It was fairly clean! It was perfect for the little ones. Donovan played in the "mushroom" to the point where it left him so giddy with excitement, he wasn't sure which direction was OUT from the water. Don't INHALE! Silly kid. Sydney had fun splashing, then taking dives face first into the water. Peyton enjoyed climbing in and out of the water copying her cousin. Dominic was in "Power Ranger Mode" the entire time and refused to go into the water for fear his "morpher" would get wet. You think the kid could set his toys down to have some fun in the water? Cousin Bianca was a helpful eye while her sisters wander out of control at times. After drying off and playing at the playground, we all loaded up in our cars and headed home. Dominic fell asleep within 5 minutes of leaving the park. Donovan fell asleep within 5 minutes of getting home.
