Valley Gardens--Pool and Snacks

The children finally convinced us to take them and their swim suits to Valley Gardens to enjoy the little wading/paddling pool they have by the playground. A new building had been under construction for some time there. We were delighted to discover it finished with both snacks and bathrooms!

Even though the water was a little cold, that didn't chill the children's spirits. They loved splashing in the water.

Wait, I'm not ready yet for a picture!

We admired the snack shop though we didn't buy anything. I was surprised that Lucy did not demand ice cream. And Jacob did not demand to use the potty. I guess the excitement of the pool was enough to satisfy them completely.

We also showed cousin Autumn the Jubilee wooden chair, which everyone took turns sitting in.

It was a fun discovery. As long as the summer stays warm, we will come again to enjoy the water and hopefully to sample the snacks available.
