Splashing into Summer

As I've been unable to drive for six weeks it has meant we've not been able to join in some of the fun that’s been happening lately. While we've been cooped up indoors the eldest’s friends have been enjoying the nearby splash park. Just over a week ago we decided to rectify this with a family outing. We grabbed a picnic and headed out to the local splash park.


The park wasn't difficult to find as we soon heard plenty of little ones running around and squealing with the joy of getting squirted by the water. As the sun beat down I placed my eldest on the ground so she could have a good look around and we touched the water together as it rose and fell to greet us.  


Soon she was running about like the other little ones and thoroughly enjoying the experience. She did have to watch out for bigger kids that were running around and nearly got wiped out once or twice!



But I am confident that I have a little water baby on my hands and I am looking forward to her joining her friends and splashing about more this Summer.



Just don't forget the dry clothes if you venture to the splash park!

  5. What delightful pictures. Is there ever a baby who isn't a water baby? Specially till they have mums to dry them off when they've had enough. #mg

  10. Aw so cute! My two love a splash park and somehow end up instantly drenched just by walking within 1/4 mile of one! The perfect thing to do in the sunshine. Thanks for linking with #fartglitter x

  14. Splash parks always look so much fun, I can see your little one's loving it. Water play really does bring something out in kids and they really do enjoy it all! I can tell that this summer every time the heat occurs you'll be off to the splash park.

    Thanks for sharing with me on #CountryKids.

  19. I love these splash parks! There are a couple near us, but aren't on very often as it's not often warm enough here. Great for cooling down and enjoying the water. She looks very happy and a proper little water baby! Thanks so much for linking up to #Whatevertheweather :) x

  20. I only know of one splash park just over an hour away from us and last time we were there it was turned off, no idea why.
    Glad she got braver and had fun. Yes sometimes the bigger children especially if they have no younger siblings will not be toddler aware and bumps will happen. #Countrykids

  22. Great tip on the extra clothes. We've not ventured to a splash park yet as our little is still only crawling, I imagine next year they'll be a staple summer outing! Looks like loads of fun! #countrykids
