Catching Some Waves

It's a good thing this blog is called Normal Everyday Life because that's all I can think of to write about tonight. No humorous stories or mothering insights to share, just a fun day that I'll want to remember when summer has passed and school routines are underway. Today we went to a local wave pool/water park. Seven kids, three moms, a picnic lunch, and water slides make for a great summer afternoon.


At this pool, the water is calm for awhile and then every so often they start the waves. My girls were right there as close to the deep end as possible waiting for the waves to build and toss them about in their tubes!


These huge slides were another hit. The kids didn't hesitate to get started on those as soon as they got there!


Of course, all that swimming and running around wore them out. Lounging in their tubes eating snacks was the best way to regain energy for the next round!

It was fun to discover a new place so close to home. Water is always a hit in the heat and cooling off with friends is the best way to experience it! This was just the type of day we'll be longing for when routine and order enter our world again in a few weeks.

  2. We'll be heading to the pool this afternoon. Trying to stay cool in the hundred degree temps. I love the fact that it doesn't look too crowded. Sounds delightful!

  5. Oh what a gorgeous water park - if they'd had something like that near me when I was growing up you'd never have got me out of the water!

  8. Thanks for linking with the SHINE Blog Hop!

    Reading this made me jealous because I now want to visit a water park! Lol! As a fellow blogger, I don't always have those humorous or insightful stories. Like you, I sometimes have a simple memory I want to hold on to & share with my readers. And that's perfect too =)

  10. Sometimes it can be impossible to get kids out of an inflatable once they have entered, and this is the factor that contributes to their health as they want to play in it when ever they can. bounce house rentals
