Splash Park

Wow! It has been so hot the last few days. We've been frequenting the swimming pool at our apartment, but it tends to get crowded. This weekend we decided to mix it up and go to a splash park I read about in an online article.

It was actually really difficult to find. The park has 2 sections, the upper and lower. To get from one to the other takes about a 15 minute hike via stairs (not quite stroller-friendly). The parking lot closest to the splash pad is down a street with foreboding signs like 'Dead End' we drove around for about 30 minutes before we actually figured it out.

It was about a 10 minute walk to the splash pad, there weren't any signs or maps and you couldn't see it from the parking lot. We just picked a random trail and got lucky that we ended up in the right spot.

I'm really not sure how Rory felt about it. He didn't love it, he didn't hate it.

He kind of just sat there and stared at the water.

At least we were able to cool down a bit. The ride over and back in the air-conditioned car may have been the best part. We might start going for a few more drives just to get out of our apartment.

Any tips for staying cool? We are melting over here!
