I packed the kids up early this morning and headed out to have some water fun. I decided to hit the Zephyr Water Park from my earlier post and experience my very first splash park ever. I didn’t know what to expect, so I was pretty excited.

When we first arrived, there was no water in the splash area. None. I was so disappointed! But, since I was there, I decided to scope out the park anyway and let the kids play on the playground. Not a bad spot!

The playground, though small, was shaded and had enough to do to keep both The Younger and Older occupied.

After about an hour, another family arrived. To my surprise, they walked into the splash area and turned the water on themselves! Score! Apparently the park likes to save water and energy; another huge plus for me.

They had an absolute blast. There was so much laughter and shrieking, I was amazed the wildlife hung around. They never tired of the spray, and I loved watching them find different ways to play.

After they tired out, we had a picnic at one of the park benches by the lake.

We must have sat there for an hour just enjoying the views and each other. They even got to feed some of the birds that stopped by.

I would absolutely recommend this park. You can’t beat the price (remember, it’s FREE ), and there’s a lot to do besides play in the water. Next time, we’re bringing our bikes to bike around the pond.
