What a Blast We Had!

We just got home a few minutes ago and I HAD to share. What a wonderful time we had at this city pool. We had never been there before...never seen it (and it's only about 10 minutes max from our house), but I had heard good things about it. We were supposed to meet up with some friends there, but they backed out when they got there and saw how long the line was. They felt they'd have to wait an hour just to get in and decided to go elsewhere to swim. There was NO way I was going to convince the girls to go somewhere else because they saw the fun stuff at the pool. It only took 15 minutes to get through the line and we were in like Flynn.

I even went into the pool and couldn't believe how comfortable the water was. Not cold, not hot, but nice and lukewarm. Awesome.
Not the best picture of Jessica, but she was HAPPY.
Amy was equally thrilled.

Just take a look to see why!
The pool is a zero depth and gradually gets deeper so the little ones have a great place to splash around. Jess liked that little blue slide and all the water splashing everywhere.
How totally cool is this?! Since the pool isn't deep, there's no diving allowed, but who would want to with all this fun stuff? See the slides? The blue was for going down in a tube, and the yellow for going down yourself. Jessica thought the yellow slide was awesome and rode it at least 5 times. And guess who else rode it a lot? Um, yes, that would be ME! Way too fun. Amy loved it to, but really wanted to try the tube slide and she was patient enough to wait her turn for a tube twice.

This bucket fills up and tips over. It makes a noise when it is close to tipping over so a bunch of people (Amy included) race over when they hear it to get dumped on. LOL
This is a way bad picture, but it's Jessica coming out of the yellow slide. They come out way too fast to get a good shot.
There was also a short "lazy river" you could go through riding on a tube. We all enjoyed that, too.
All in all, I am super happy that the girls got to enjoy this little adventure. I'm glad we stuck it out and waited in the line. It was busy, but not too bad. Most every one was in great spirits, which made for a very pleasant afternoon. Yay!

Thanks for checking out our afternoon fun!
