We have a free local splash pad near us that I take the boys to several times each summer. We went there last week one evening when Marc was gone salmon fishing. It’s a nice little set-up. They have a sand area to play in and picnic tables with umbrellas near by for the mamas to stay in the shade. Although, I confess… I’ve had to get up a few times and run through the water to cool down. And it’s fenced in, so I’m comfortable keeping one eye on the boys and the other in a good book. Win. Win.
