Splash Island

Well, our play date at Splash Island started off with a hitch. When we arrived, the gates were locked. The sign clearly says that it opens at 9 am on Saturdays, so Joanne sprang into action, using her iPhone, she was quickly able to find a contact number. She finally got a hold of someone and they said they'd send someone right out to unlock it. So while we waited, we let the kids play on a nearby playground.


Which is kind of hard to do in a bathing suit. Sophia kept getting stuck on the slide.
We finally made our way to Splash Island.
Even baby Jena was there. We did, however, miss 2 of our playmates, Atticus and Emily. Of course Splash Island is all about the water, but.....

it's also about the running......
But it was also about the buckets. I didn't realize what a big hit they would be when Kristy got them out but they loved them.
And apparently another underlying theme for the day...butt crack. A couple of our cuties had trouble keeping their bottoms on. Must have been all the running or her swimsuit has gotten stretched out because we've never had this issue before and she's been in the pool all week.
Of course what would a good play date be without snacks?

And more butt crack.....

Well Sophia is losing her pants. Caleb was trying to lay down beside Jane. Explanation?

It definitely looks like a good time was had by all. We missed you guys! I hope our playgroup decides to go there again soon!
