Since it was not raining today, we met some friends at a nearby public pool that's at one of our favorite parks. For $3.00 a person, you can swim in one of two time slots: 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm or 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm.
The pool has a water slide, lazy river, and a kids area.
Benjamin went for the water slide first, while Cava decided he wanted to just relax a bit in the water before he got started:
He wasn't going to have anything to do with the buckets that dumped water on kids, however.
We weren't there 10 minutes before it started thundering (What? The weatherman didn't predict any storms for today - what's up with that?) and we all had to go wait in the bathrooms for it to stop. After 15 minutes, we were back outside and swimming (Thankfully, since there are no refunds).
Cava discovered the lazy river, which he rode using two noodles.
But it wasn't long before his big brother was calling to him. "CAVA! Come on! Let's go down the water slide!"
Next thing I knew, they were both in line waiting to go down.
His favorite part?
The splash at the end:
Then it was back in line for some more.
While we were swimming, it began to sprinkle. Cava complained, "No! Not rain again! Now I'll get wet!" (This was said while in the pool).
Still, despite the momentary storm, we all had a blast and Cava, in his usual style, immediately asked afterwards, "Can we go back tomorrow?"
