Callum is getting older so some of my go-to places aren't fun for him anymore . . . and this mama is allergic to heat and humidity so that narrows the field just a bit : )
My friend Jami moved to the area a few months ago from NC, and I'm ashamed to say I haven't gone to visit her. She and I decided to do something about that and scheduled a play date for our kids (who haven't seen each other since they were toddlers). She suggested a spray park near her house . . . ummmmm, yes please. You had me at water sprinklers!
It's called Our Special Harbor Spray Park, and it's AWESOME!!!
It's awesome because it's free.
It's awesome because it has covered picnic areas.
It's awesome because it has a super cool playground (right next to the spray park).
It's awesome because it has water sprinklers.
It's awesome because it has shade.
Did I mention it's FREE?!?!?!
Another bonus for me was the fact that it was fenced - I prefer play areas that have one entrance/exit. A few lifeguards sat at the entrance/exit to make sure no kids left unsupervised . . . so my eagle eyes could relax . . . just a little.
The kids made a little friend too (HI tie-dyed boy) which was so sweet : )
We had a great time catching up with old friends and really loved finding a new place to stay cool this summer. The weather was great (not as hot as I expected), and we stayed for almost 3 hours.
Definitely a win in my book . . . and I'll take that sticker now : )
How do you and your little ones beat the heat in the summer months? Any recommendations for places we should check out in the local area?
