Water season begins...

A couple of weeks ago, we went to Tempe Splash Playground. It is one of Thomas' favorite places. (and now Alex's, too) In fact, last summer, we'd be driving on the 202 freeway, and about the time we'd be passing this park, he'd say " mommy, waterpark!" (You can't see the waterpark from the freeway.) The first time I thought it was a fluke, but after that every time we'd pass by it on the freeway, he would repeat it. Since then, I have noticed that he is pretty good with directions. Except sometimes, he stubbornly says, "this way, mommy! this Way!" when I know we have to go the opposite direction.
Anyways, it was pretty cold the evening we went, but the kids still loved it! I didn't get wet. Dad was a trooper and played with them in the cold water :)

great pics! I kind of miss living in Tempe, where we were just minutes away from everything, except Dennis's work!

We went there a couple of weeks ago and my boys loved it. The only problem is finding a time that its not too busy with people. Maybe the evening - looks quiet while you were there. Looks like you guys had fun.

Cute, cute boys! I have to admit I'm a little partial to the little guy intent on the ball. Thomas is a pretty smart one to be oriented at such a young age! Wow!

Was this a later-in-the-day trip? We always try to go at 10, and it's so crazy. Still, we love it, too :) See you there this week!

One of the many perks of living in this hot hole of a state: splash parks.
Your boys are darling...including the big one :)

What a fun outing! We love water parks here too. About a Farar reunion...let's do it! I am totally willing to plan one...maybe for next year?? What do you think? I feel the same about wanting to get to know all of the spouses (and some of my cousins!) better.
