splash park

With all of this hot hot weather we have been having, we have had a hard time finding an outdoor water park that Bree could play at. Until last Friday, when a co-worker of mine, who has a 2-year-old grandson, told me about a "splash park" in Chehalis. It is at their community center right off the freeway. It was great! The splash park is free and the pool is only $3 per person. Bree "splashed" in the park for a while, then all three of us jumped in the pool. Bree has only done swim lessons once (last summer), so we weren't real sure on how she would do in the pool. She LOVED it! After only about 20 minutes, she was jumping off the edge into our arms. I didn't get any pics of her in the pool, but here are some from the splash park. I think we are headed there again this weekend.

Last week was lakefair. Corndogs, strawberry short cake, cotton candy, shaved ice. Last week we took Bree to Lakefair a few times. We were quite surprised, actually, at how many of the rides she went on. She had an absolute blast! Here are some pictures from Lakefair.

Okay, so she wasn't a big fan of the roller coaster afterall, but at least she tried it.

Lake chelan or bust!

This is the website of the place we rented in Chelan.
The people that we have as "coming for sure" are:
Heidi, Erin, Tishelle, Libby, Kristen, Corrine, Jenn (Flint), Kara, and then possibly Demeri and Aubri.
If your name is not on here, and you were wanting to join, please let us know ASAP.
Just as a reminder, we booked this for August 28th-30th (leaving town on Friday and coming home on Sunday).
The cost for each person will be $80 for the entire weekend. There is a possibility that it may $20 more for each person, depending on if Demeri and Aubri join us.
If everyone can stick a check in the mail to Heidi this next week, she would really appreciate it! We have to "pay before we stay".

Also, Heidi and i were thinking, it would be fun if, since there will be at least 8 of us, that we split the dinners in half. Meaning, 4 of us cook dinner for all of us on Friday night, then the other 4 cook dinner for all of us on Saturday. We can decide in the next few weeks what we want to make so that we can get the groceries, or we can just buy them here.

If anyone has any questions, please ask ASAP. I also sent each of you a note through facebook on 07/10/09.
