Water Park

Thanks to this great idea from fellow blogger Katie, when we went to visit my Dad and Donna in Gainesville this past Sunday we also took a trip to the Aquatic Center where they have an outdoor water park. Of course Ramsey loved it! I thought he might be a little timid it being new territory and all but nope he thought it was great as did we. There is a great little kids area and Cope and I even went on the big water slides. It made me itch for a trip to White Water.

Here is Ramsey wiping out at the bottom of the kiddie slide. His eyes we SO wide when Cope got him but he was ready for more: He had to wear a life jacket which I thought he'd hate but he didn't mind one bit:
It was a little chilly so wrapped up and got cozy and somewhat dry before heading out:

Oh, also on this particular day I thought for sure Ramsey would doze a little on the 1.5 hour trip to G'ville but nope not a bit. So when we hit the water park at 12:00 I thought he would be in meltdown mode. Nope. He played hard. So I thought maybe he would relax with me when we got back to my Dad's but nope, too much to explore. I even dozed off. You know it is bad when the mom naps and the kid doesn't. So we finally headed for home about 4:30 and before we made it 2 minutes down the road he was passed out. It was the first time he had ever gone that long without a nap but it was good to see he can adjust if needed.

Looks like fun. We're gonna have to venture that water park. Lacey takes Kaytlin there sometimes and she said it was awesome too.
