Sunshine, water and WATERPARKS….
No East Texas summer is complete without sun and water. From the time I was a little girl, sun, water and water parks have been part of our hot Texas summers. I have very vivid memories of swimsuits, sunscreen, sunburns (unfortunately) and lots and lots of water. We would take a trip west on I20 every summer to spend the day at a waterpark. We would go hard all day long and I can remember being exhausted when it was all over. Swimming exhaustion is the best!!!
Fast forward to motherhood and I was so excited when that first summer came that I could take my girls to a waterpark. AND the best part is that we have a fabulous locally owned waterpark right here in East Texas. Do you know about Splash Kingdom Waterpark? Every summer since we moved back to East Texas, we have spent many days here. What I love is that there is something for everyone! When my girls were younger we could go and literally spend all day in the “kid’s castle” area. As little walkers, they are able to move around in the water because it’s depth is appropriate for toddlers. The slides are great for littles and the area isn’t overwhelming, so you don’t have to feel like you’ll lose your kids. Plus, there are lifeguards all around to be an extra set of eyes.
Now that my kids are a bit older, I love going and giving them a bit more freedom. I enjoy walking around with them and enjoying the wave pool and the lazy river, but I also like the fact that the park isn’t huge and I can set a check-in point and give them some time on their own. They love the freedom too!
Over the past several months with the blog, I’ve had the opportunity to learn some things about Splash Kingdom that I didn’t know….maybe you didn’t either!
