Summer Fun #3 ~ First Trip of the Year to the Splash Park

One of our first summer field trips was to visit the splash park.  We decided to visit one that we had only visited once in 2012 for one of Evan's old preschool birthday parties.  The park is close to the center of uptown (or downtown if you prefer) in a neighborhood called Dilworth.  The splash pad isn't fancy and is just a big concrete circle surrounded by a fence with water shooting out of the concrete.  The kids love it though, and they get thoroughly soaked on a hot day.  It was a nice hot day so the water felt nice.  We actually went on a Saturday so Daddy could go with us.

Brody was prepared with buckets to fill.

He was also proudly wearing his new Mickey shorts.  They are his new favorites!

Evan runs through the water full speed ahead.  He doesn't need toys or accessories anymore to have a good time.

I love this shot of Evan.  Seriously, he is in his own little world in these pictures just fighting bad guys and keeping the world safe.  Haha!

Score!

Brody wanted to score one too.

And of course, a little comparison is necessary:

  3. This looks like a really fun day! I always love your pictures of water splashing. You get really good pictures.

    I hope Sam and Rachel get more into splash pads this year. I guess we shall see. Sam always gets into his own little world too. It's fun to watch.

  4. Oh wow! I was impressed with how much Evan grew in 2 years and then I saw Brody. He was just a tiny little tike in 2012. Can you believe we've been reading each other's blogs for 2 years????!!!!
