Someone- relatively recently- came up with a genius idea. The Splash Pad. Which is a glorified sprinkler/in ground fountain- water play with almost no drowning risk- hey when you are out numbered by kids the way I am....... it is a concern, especially when you have a dare devil like Peas to contend with.
It is genius. I would have lived at the splash pad if they were around when I was a kid. As it is now- my kids and I live there- a lot.
We are very fortunate that we have several around us to choose from. This allows us to keep thinks fresh and stay cool. My favorite splash pad is fully fenced so the kids cannot escape with out an adult.
I have little fishies. My kids are drawn to the water it is some kind of amazing magnetic thing.
Peas has no fear. When my friend and I were at the pool she was amazed that little Peas will jump in over her head and go under water on her own- and giggle hysterically. She gets upset when it is time to leave the pool.
Princess this year figured out how to swim underwater. Now getting her out of the pool is harder than ever. She also developed a love for water slides.
Stinky is still cautious. He goes in but does not want to go under.. totally typical for a three year old; but still getting him out of the pool is never easy. However- this week he has started putting his face in the water.
Even Pixie the little baby loves to splash. One of her favorite things to do is to go in the water pretty far in- like to her chest and have me hold her while she kicks her feet and giggles with joy.
