God's Water Park

We are a family who likes to have fun.


We are a family who likes to be together.

We are a family who likes to NOT spend a lot of money.

We are a family who likes to have fun together while not spending a lot of money.

So...this weekend my awesome hubby took us to "God's Water Park". I was a little apprehensive to begin with not knowing exactly where it was we were going. I was VERY apprehensive when he pulled off onto the side of the road and announced, "We're here!"

My apprehension continued to grow as we climbed over downed trees and did our best to avoid puddles of mud that screamed, "I want to suck you in!!" while making our way to this "God's Water Park" that he'd raved about all morning.

But, I must admit, once we were finally there I was like, "Rock on babe! This is great!!"

Remember in the movie "The Swiss Family Robinson", when the family took the day off and enjoyed some time at the local water hole swinging from vines and sliding down the rocks into the water? This was so that water hole minus the vines to swing from. The water was cool and refreshing and it was peaceful and quiet. It was nice; really nice.

And, we were together.

And, we were having fun.

And, we were not spending lots of money.

We were having fun together, not spending money, and enjoying "God's Water Park" made especially for us.

If, I do say so myself, this is one B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. family- and they're mine, all mine.

The Wee Princess had a blast. She had NO fear. Zero. Zippo. Zilch.

Of course we had to bring the dog. She had a great time!

We swam a little.

We relaxed a little.

We had a leaf race.

We caught tadpoles.

We enjoyed the beauty of God's creation.

We swam some more.

And, we loved on each other.

What great photos!! Everyone looks like they are having a wonderful time - it does look like a lot of "nature" for me ("get it off...its all over me" - favorite movie quote!) The baby looks so sweet! :)
