Where We'll Be This Summer

 In the fall, the kids will be starting at a new school.  We are excited to get into the new school, but the 3-day-a-week class was full for Cooper, so we opted to see how he does going five days a week.  Really I think he will get along just fine, but for the summer, I want to make sure we fit in a lot of easy-going fun!  We plan on taking advantage of my still part-time work schedule and all the fun kid things South Texas has to offer.  The idea is for our activities during the summer to be easy, cheap (or free) and of course FUN!  I'll be posting regularly through the summer all the fun things we find to do.  We started our fun kid activity tour this week with a trip to the Texas State Aquarium splash park.  We have a membership, so admission and parking for us and one guest are free every time we go, since our membership has already paid for itself with our trips to the aquarium earlier in the year. 

I highly recommend the splash park for little kids!  It is clean, well maintained, and perfect for small children to splash around.  It isn't that exciting for bigger kids, which was nice, since my little kids tend to get trampled at a lot of play areas we go to.  This was not an issue on this particular morning.  We were joined by my cousin Ashley and her little one, Charley.  Charley is not quite a year yet, but had a really good time too!

Charley is enthralled with the spewing water.
Cooper waits patiently for the water.
There it is!
