Splash Park Saturday

Saturday morning we went out to breakfast at Denny's w/ Grandma & Grandpa. Asher gets so excited about Saturday mornings. We tell him it's Saturday & he proclaims "Eat Pancakes!" After that we went to the Farmer's Market w/ Grandma to look at the veggies & get some new potatoes (yum). We met a couple from Burdett where Chad had done his internship 3 years ago & talked to them awhile, then went to the Show & Shine since it was Street Wheeler's weekend. Most the cars were not out b/c they also had 100 ft races going on at the same time, but we didn't want to go see the races, so we just went home shortly thereafter.

After lunch & naptime we decided since it was a nice warm day, to take Asher to the splash park. They have one that is downtown that is basically a fountain that you can run through & it randomly shoots water from all the different holes. Chad decided on the way there that he'd rather go to the one by the pool on the West side, so that's where we went.

It was pretty cold water. Asher & Chad went in & I made sure no one took our stuff. It's a tough job, but someone has to be on towel-watch! The splash park on the West side is a bit for the older kids though, so I think next time we'll probably take Asher to the downtown one instead. There are all kinds of buttons you have to push in order to make the water go on & you get pretty wet in most of the areas. It is pretty nice though to have an option for cooling off in the heat that is free. Sure it might be more fun to swim in the pool, but it's also more expensive!
