The Wave Pool

I took the kids to the wave pool last evening. I thought for sure that Claire would be terrified as the waves are crashing up on the deck at the rate of a strong ocean. She absolutely loved it, and I had to work hard to keep up with her and Sam who were ploughing off in different directions. The waves settle out every fifteen minutes so for a few minutes we had just normal water. That was a little easier. Then the siren goes again and the waves start rolling. The crowd goes wild, all crashing into each other. It's hilarious to see wee kids trying to surf in a pool. The water was soooo warm, rather beach like in fact. Poor Daniel was beaned by a stray flutter board in a rather sensitive area which made things even funnier.

Rainy again today so we are off to visit Grandmother, and the grocery store and maybe take in a movie at some point. Hope you all have fabulous weekends....

We went to a wave pool a few years back and just had so much fun.

Sounds like you are off to a good start to the weekend.

Take care. Connie
