Bedford Splash

Our playgroup, sadly minus Joshua and Laney, had such a great time at this water park called Bedford Splash. It definitely rated high on the playdate fun chart as one of the best. With all the rain Texas has been having, it really was a miracle that we were able to go. We had off and on really black clouds hanging over, but we prayed that we would be able to get at least a couple of hours in and that's what we got. As soon as we all decided to leave and got in our cars, it started pouring.

Jackson loved the fountains!

Could they be any cuter?

"I love your hat!" Ella says. "I love YOUR hat!" Ava exclaims.

Ella loved this yellow turtle. She wasn't quite brave enough to go down the big slide like Jackson, so she turned this turtle into her own slide.

The moms decided we would take turns going down the big slides while we watched each other's babies. We started with this one:

I felt like such a kid. I giggled the entire way down it. I haven't been on a water slide in years.

The second slide I braved alone and good thing I did.

The first slide made me feel like a kid, this slide made me realize that I am not. I got so freaked out by the shear speed I was going that I tried to sit up to slow myself down. When trying that, I whipped into the funnel thing at such momentum that the G forces pushed me back so hard I hit the back of my head and think I got a bit of whiplash. I'm not kidding. My neck today is so sore that I can barely move it side to side and up and down. I know I'm not old, but I am on the verge of 30, but I should do better on a water slide that 8 year olds were riding over and over with such glee and excitement.

Oh man! That last 'adult' slide looks like sooo much stinking fun! Those little bonnets are just adorable. I keep hopping over your site off of Amanda's (I think???) - you end up getting lost a bit in blog world. Nonetheless, your girl is just a doll. Glad you got to enjoy the park for just a bit.

You get the "Brave Mom" award of the day for going on that white & blue slide!

I didn't realize you got hurt on that slide! Bless your heart! Neck pain is not fun.

Oh, man!!! I think that the only reason the 8 year olds are sliding with glee is because they don't understand how fast they are going and what G forces are!!! Wowsers!!! Hope you get to feeling better!!! Oh, and we are NOT old!!! ;) Adorable pictures by the way!!! :)

How fun to get to do the adult slide with the kiddos watching!!!! I hope your neck feels better!

What FUN! I wish we had a place like that around here...

Kids are good at things like that because they don't have sense enough to be fearful yet. I used to be so daring about rides, and flying, and skiied so fast! Then I hit twenty-something and turned into somebody's Grandma. And not the hip, eternally young kind. You are so brave to even go on that thing! I hope your neck is back to normal ASAP!

LOVE the photos of the two ladies and their hats. Precious comments, too. :)

Ahh.. your poor neck. We had so much fun that day. I have to say again how much I love the picture of Ella and Ava in their sun hats!
