Five Things You Don’t Want To See When You Take Your Kids To The Splash Park


5. Your son saying “Hey dad, try to keep this bottle standing up!” then looking over to see he’s left his bottle of root beer standing precariously on the edge of the picnic blanket without a lid.  (Needless to say, it didn’t stay standing up.)

4. Your daughter wandering into the running water of the various splash pad nozzles with half the sandwich you brought for a picnic lunch, clutched tightly in her hand.

3.  Your son pushing the button on one of the strongest spray nozzles right after saying “Hey dad, come stand here!” 😉

2.  Your daughter falling on her butt as she slips down the small incline on the side of the splash pad.

1. Your daughter’s legs in the air after she does a face plant into a pebbled culvert which drains the water away from the splash pad. (Seriously, who designed this splash pad?  A hospital supplies salesman?)

I saw all of the above things tonight.  Luckily, Sasha’s worst injury is a goose egg on her forehead and a small scratch on her nose instead of anything worse!
