It’s National Water Park Day!
It is National Water Park Day! It's also the COVID-19 pandemic, so I won't be able to check out one of the many amazing water parks Michigan has to offer. Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City is one of our favorites and Splash Universe in Dundee holds some special memories for indoor water parks. If your are outdoors in Michigan, you don't even need a park, you can make your own like we did.
We are always looking for ways to keep our daughter active and outside. We have spent a crap load of money on plastic but the #1 thing this kid loves to play with in our yard is her sprinkler. It's COLD AS HELL! On hot, humid days, even I love that thing.
The Water slide is also a must but be careful if you are old like me. There is a reason they call it a slip n' slide and it's hell on old knees. It's best to start looking for water slides now because they are going into clearance soon. That is when we bought this one, last year on clearance.
Pools are a crap shoot so good luck. We recently spotted a "Shark Ride" pool that looks like fun to us. NOTHING is ever as cool as it looks on the internet. This includes people. All she really needs is a sprinkler and a few water balloons.
