Splash Pad Saturday

Splash Pad Saturday

On Saturday, we took a little ride to Tanglewood Park to try our their Aquatics Center Pool & Splash Pad.  I had 'splash pad' on my summer bucket list of things to want to try with Emerson this summer because not only is he walking this summer, he's the perfect age to love something like [...]

Emerson was the most interested in the straw on the ground for the first 15 minutes when [...]
