Splish Splash

This morning we met up with some friends at the splash park at the Alachua rec. park. Crystal had been before and had invited Carrie and Allie to join them this time and they invited us, too...Crystal and Carrie and I used to carpool back when we were all going to LCCC....this morning kind of reminded me of those days...(since I was 30 minutes late).....Yep, it was just like the old days... during our junior college years, we'd all meet at Carrie's house and then drive to school together. I was ALWAYS the last one there! I'm sorry, girls. Despite my tardiness this morning, I promise I have gotten lots better than I used to be with my punctuality!



The splash park was super cute, and the kids loved it. I didn't take many pictures... mainly because I am figuring Carrie or Crystal will blog it and have better pics than I took....

Annabelle wasn't quite ready to get down on her own to splash, (even if she thought she was!). But, she had a great time watching the other kids run around and play in the water....


Annabelle & Momma splashing


This is Crystal's youngest, Wyatt.
He is so cute. He has the sweetest little eyes, and cheeks that just need pinching. He provided some serious entertainment, too...One time we looked up and he was standing with his swimming trunks pulled down fixing to go potty right there on the grass by the splash pad... It was hilarious...

Crystal's sister, Tania also came and it was good to get to finally meet Tania in person. We read each other's blogs, but hadn't ever met, even though we feel like we have...

Here's Miss Allie Claire...


And I finally let Belle sit on the ground (with Aunt Carrie close by)


Crystal also invited a few other friends and their kids... so we had quite the crew! The Mommas all just sat at the edge of the splash pad, talked and watched the little ones and passed out snacks and sippy cups... you know, typical momma stuff...
After about an hour of splashing, we decided it was time to get some lunch...

it's always fun to see old friends and make new ones...

Thanks for letting us tag along, girls! It was great....we'll do it again, soon! I promise to not be late next time! Well, I promise to TRY REALLY HARD not to be late!

Not sure how fair it is for ya'll to be off splashing while Braley, Wyatt, and I are stuck in school. Looks like fun!

I had a great time watching all you "young momma's" with your sweet little ones. Enjoyed getting to finally meet you in person and hope to be able to get together again one day.
Thanks to all for a fun filled morning!

I did have a great time and I hope we can all get together soon to do something fun. Put your thinking cap on & lets plan something else!!

Oh, I used to love those splash park playdates. I'm kind of beyond that now, as my kids would love it, but the other moms of babies would probably tell us to leave...

It's hard when your kids grow UP!! So much you can't get a way with anymore.
