Tempe Town Lakes
Sareny's last day of kindergarten was a half day, so we headed out to Tempe Town Lakes splash park immediately afterwards for some summer fun.
I think the best thing about this splash park is the slide.
This was Finley's second time at a splash park, and she really got into it this time. (The first time she sat on my lap and refused to get wet.)
I spent most of my time there trying to keep up with her!
I walked up and saw Isaac pulling his shorts out so the water could go in. It was kind of funny, but I told him to stop.
This splashpark has little rivers, which is great fun for the little ones.
We met our friends the Avila's there, and had a lot of fun with them.
What a surprise--Isaac liked the "shooter guns."
All in all, it was a very fun day. I was a little surprised when a news crew from NBC started setting up, and I asked them what they were filming about. Apparently it was the first day Phoenix got over 100 degrees this year, and they were doing a story on how people stay cool here. I called the kids over and she filmed them having fun in the water. Then she asked if she could interview me, which I didn't really think sounded so cool, but I agreed. Fortunately, Krystal was on hand to take some pictures!
Finley realized someone was talking to her mommy. How dare they??
I did the last part of the interview holding her.
So we made it onto the evening news, even if it was only a 5 second blurb. Pretty cool, nonetheless.
I stay at home with 4 beautiful children--3 girls and 1 boy. Sareny is 9, Isaac is 6, Finley is 4, and baby Keeley is one! I've been married to my best friend for 15 years now, and we're still happy. Life is beautiful!
