Free Admission to Fun

To celebrate Parks and Recreation Month, a nearby water park is offering free admission on Wednesdays in July. The theme was "Pack the Pool," but this is as crowded as it got. The people on the right belong to me, so it's not packed at all.

I've been wanting to take the kids this water park for some time, but at a cost of $7.00 per person, it is far more expensive than the other parks we frequent. The free admission deal couldn't be passed up, even though free admission begins at 5:00 P.M. We planned ahead, ate an early dinner, and packed a cooler full of snacks. We also have no plans for tomorrow so the kids can sleep in.

The little kids spent the majority of time on the water slide, while the teenagers floated in the pool and lounged in the chairs. For some reason, my kids think the girls are for climbing on. Fortunately, they're kind to their little cousins and gave them "horsey rides" all over the place. Gracie brought bubbles from home, which ended up being a great idea. She blew all the bubbles she wanted, then rinsed all the drips off in the water.

It's been so wonderful having the girls here. They're so sweet and so helpful. It's such a blessing to have this special time with them having fun and making memories. I think we'll all be sad to see them go.
