Turtle Park has a separate "splash ground" area beside the playground part, which is finally open for the season. There was just no reason not to go today!
We bring the "Joe bucket" from Jack's party every time we go to the park . It works as well in the water area as it does with the sand. (By the way, does everyone know that Brent hates it when people call him "Joe?" He'll say "Who is Joe?? His name is Joseph." So proper, that man of mine.) But wouldn't you know, he dumped the bucket the second he found a car.
The stars were aligned and 2 of Joseph's favorite things came together today - cars and water. He had a field day!
At the end of the day we found out there actually was a reason not to go today, as our poor little guy came down with a fever around dinnertime. Oh well, we'll just have to see how that one plays out.
