While the boys are away, the girls play! We grabbed some friends and headed over to Flying Horse to swim and eat dinner by the pool. The older girls took turns playing with Madeline in the water while I read my book in the shade. It’s nice to have good kids who are willing to help with the younger one. After an hour of uninterrupted time, I took my turn with Madeline and played in the water with her. She loved the kiddie pool with all the spouts and other kids running around. We loved relaxing at the pool and eating yummy food. It was a great way to spend the day together.
After Mike, Andrew, and Peter left for their boy’s adventure trip, the girls and I decided to head on over to Flying Horse for their Taco Thursday event. It was kind of overcast so we spent most of the time in the hot tub after stuffing out faces full of yummy tacos. It was nice to be able to spend time with just the girls.
We all love swimming at Flying Horse in the summertime. It is hardly ever crowded and there are lots of fun things for the kids to do. With two different pools, a waterslide, a kid’s water playground, and a sand volleyball court, the kids are never board when we go there to swim. Madeline loved walking around the water playground and although she wasn’t really into climbing up the stairs and getting sprayed in the face with water, she did love the various waterspouts spraying straight up out of the water. She did go down the slide a few times, but the slide was so fast that she just flew off the end of the slide and it hurt her little bottom. She did, however, go down the big kid waterslide with Emma and Peter a few times. She did love that but her favorite thing was actually just sitting and laying in the shallow water or having someone hold her in the big pool.
