Kicking Off the Weekend

Happy Memorial Day weekend, at least for all of you Americans:) We sort of kicked off our weekend fun yesterday afternoon. Even though the area where we live is pretty *small town* in general, there is a lot to do here. Since we've only lived here two years now we're still in the exploring stage. One thing that our area (I say "area" because there are four cities right together) does very well is parks. I've mentioned one or two of them recently.


Well, just this Spring they've opened a new one. It has a really cool playground with all of the equipment on that great bouncy rubber surface. It has great picnic tables and a nice pavilion. But the main attraction is the huge *splash pad*. It is so much fun--at least it looked like fun, I was just on the sidelines taking pics! The kiddos really enjoyed it though. It was our first visit there, but it definitely won't be our last. I mean, it's better than a pool for little ones since they just like to splash anyway--and it's FREE!

So what are your plans for the holiday weekend? I plan to get some things done around the house today and then we'll probably head back to the splash pad this afternoon. Tomorrow will be be busy with church (and hopefully an afternoon nap). Then on Monday we've been invited to some friends' house for a cookout. Yum! I'd love to hear about what you're doing. Have a great weekend! I'll leave you with some pics from the park:
