Splashin'

This morning, my mom, nephew, Tyler, Jared and I went splashin' at Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center here in town. We would have gone to Hamilton's pool, that is closer and where we've been to in the past, but since school started up on Monday the high schools use the pools M-F. Oh well.

We had fun at this new pool! This pool, too, is being used by the high school nearby but they have the kiddie pool area open during the week, which is nice. It was quite fun. Jared had fun turning all of the wheels that controlled the water spouts and waterfalls and going down the slides. Then, there's this HUGE bucket (or "cup," as Jared liked to call it ;) ) on top of the kiddie water structure that fills up 752 gallons of water and then dumps it on everyone underneath. If you didn't know what it did, then let's just say you'd unknowingly get soaked (ahem, Grammy ;) ). We all enjoyed the time there! My mom and I noted several babies at the pool. She said "oh look, you could bring the girls here!" Yeah, I don't know about that ;) Maybe when they are much older...and I have a lot of extra hands on deck :)

You can't beat the price either - $0.50 for kids and $1.50 for adults. Sweet!!

ETA: There's something big happening tomorrow (Thursday) :)
