Get Ready, Get Set...

Friday's slip read...
"Get ready, get set, because we're gonna dash-
    We are going to the park to SPLASH!"

Friday morning, we got our swimsuits on, lathered up with sunscreen,
and headed to the splash grounds located in a park near uptown.

 I cannot believe in all the years we've lived here that I've NEVER taken the kids to visit this park.

 It was BEAUTIFUL, with lots of shade, a great playground, and THE perfect places for picnicking.
Not to mention the AWESOME splash grounds that were there too!
My kids had a blast jumping, climbing, and sliding on the playground!

 After they were nice a sweaty from all that running around,
we headed over to the splash grounds to cool off.

This is where the REAL fun began.

 Oh.My.Goodness did they have a BLAST!!
The babies loved it,

and I think my big boys had fun too;)
After all that playing they did, they worked up quite the appetite. 

We found a nice shady spot, laid out our blanket, and enjoyed a yummy picnic lunch!

After lunch, it was back to the pad for a little more water fun before calling it a day!

A SPLASHIN' good time was had by all;)

Hello there, I'm looking for pictures of adopted kids (with or without all the siblings) with a patriotic flair to them to post on www.wearegraftedin.com for the 4th of July. If you have any you wouldn't mind contributing, let me know! We'd love it! Thanks!

You have some of the best ideas... what great memories your kids are going to have. I may have to look into taking the kids to the splash grounds. I know they would love it.
