Our family has stumbled upon a little known hidden gem locally. A spring fed pond out in the middle of nowhere, complete with metal slides, diving board, sandy beach, picnic tables, grills, fishing, and a sense of quiet relaxation.
It's about 15 minutes from our house, members only so it's never real busy. Friends of mine are members already and another great family who are good friends joined yesterday after we told them about it. I took the kids today and we spent a good 4 1/2 hours there, but it easily could've been more.
Braeden met some other boys there around his age (the only other family there after two others left our first hour into our time there) and was able to go fishing with them, catching two, and having a blast.
They don't allow any floats, water wings, floatation devises, etc, but with a note I got from Liam's neurologist last week, they approved a vest for him, which I am so grateful for, due to his seizure disorder.
The water was a bit cold for Olivia, but she had so much fun in the sand. She did swim a bit toward the end and loved it!
Braeden just did so well searching for critters, fishing, playing, swimming.
Definitely well worth the SMALL price we paid for a summer FULL of fun! Cannot EVEN wait to spend time with friends around the water hole! :) Reminds me SO much of a lake we camped and swam at while I was young.
I look forward to a summer of memories and for years to come!
