Our sitters told us about this fun park down the street from us that has a great little water park and water fun for the kids. If you know Dallas, you know that right around this time of year, it is almost unbearable to be outside in the middle of the day and the only way to stay optimistic about this heat is to go to pools, water parks, and play in sprinklers. :)
We headed to Kiddie Korral to experience this new park, unfortunetely, the actual water part doesn't open till next weekend, but while we were there we took advantage of the great playground and had fun just walking around.
This playground was perfect for Cole, perfect size for him. Oh, and as you can see, he has his swim suit on ready for some water action....bummer that the water park wasn't working yet!
He had so much fun playing at this new park. We are lucky in that we have some awesome parks so close to our house, so of course we are excited to find even more!
These horses were pretty crazy! You can see the coil at the bottom and when Nick was on them, he could get the tail of the horse all the way on the ground. I'm not sure who had more fun with these...Nick or Cole. I think Cole and I had a lot of fun just watching Nick play on the horses!
Cole wanted to give it a try, but he kept hitting his mouth on the back of the horses head so he didn't stay on for too long.
Again....Nick playing around
Cole and I finally got a picture together :)
Since we were all a little disappointed that the water wasn't on at the park, I had the idea to get a sprinkler head and then we could see if Cole would enjoy playing in the backyard with the sprinkler. We hooked up the sprinkler thinking Cole would just run away from it, but looking at this following picture.....do you think he had fun!?!
He would get up super close to it, but then run away flapping his arms and giggling.
I don't think Nick or I have ever laughed so hard
What was especially funny was after we decided to go back inside, of course we stripped him naked out in the backyard so we didn't drag grass into the house. We always joke about hosing him off after meals because he gets so dirty, but we literally did that this time. ha! I'm sure our neighbors would have gotten a kick out of looking out their window, seeing a naked baby run around the yard with 2 parents chasing after him and then using the hose to clean him off. Nice!
Here is a video of Cole running through the sprinkler
