This morning we met the Wolfe ladies at WaterWorks. We had a BLAST! Hallie and I debated not going because it was not going to be very hot, but we are so glad we did!!! Last summer, I learned that there are several park district pools around us. Most of them charge a nominal fee to get in, and they all have slightly different features. Obviously last summer was not a good time to try them all out, but this summer I wanted to check some out to see what was a good fit for us. So far, we've made it to one pool (Veteran's with Brandi and the kids)... There are also two water parks. WaterWorks is slightly smaller, and it is closer to us. On Wednesday mornings for several weeks during the summer, they offer a Playdate option: $3.50/child. No admission for adults and the hours are 9-10:30am. We definitely got our $3.50 worth!!!
The adorable kid area is definitely separate from the larger pool and slides. It was well-staffed with lifeguards, and everything was just perfect for Jackson! There were a couple of slides, tons of sprayers, and then a toddler area with a small slide and squirters shooting up from the ground. I think the water was a bit chilly for Graham, but he was a pretty good sport. The bigger kids were going the whole time! Mostly they were throwing themselves down the slides and then racing back up the climbing net or the stairs to go again! Violet and Graham hung out in the toddler area and were good sports as Hallie and I took them several times to go down the bigger slides with their sisters and brother :)
Down go Izzy and Jackson
The three "big" kids!
Group shot attempt...
We had SUCH a fun time! I'm just bummed that this was the second to last week for this opportunity since Jackson has camp next Wednesday :( We will definitely be coming again!
