We have two splash parks in the city we live and we've decided that the tax dollars that went towards these delightful parks are by far the best tax-paid-money that our city could spend. It's FREE to the public and the kids adore getting soaked in this Texas heat. We bring some chairs, a picnic blanket, a cooler and some toys and whalla! The kids are in heaven playing gleefully in the water while Mom, Dad and Baby sister bask in the shade on the side. It's a self contained wonderland for all! So, if you have a splash park in a city near you and you've been contemplating whether or not it's a good thing trust me when I say "RUN, don't look back, take your kids!". Your life will forever be changed! You'll love, love, love, love it!!!
