More Water Fun!

So on Monday we had our trip to the beach. With another HOT week out here we decided that more water wasn't a bad thing. On Friday I decided to take A to the new community park that just opened because I heard there was a splash park there. We headed out early-ish before it got too hot and met up with some friends for a fun day. Or so I thought. Now, for those who are in the know, you already know how much my daughter LOVES to play in the water. Of any kind. Yes, she's been known to keep herself occupied in a bucket of ice at a party or two. If there's a puddle on the ground, she will find it and play in it. Heck, she's been known to spill her own juice/water/milk just to keep herself entertained. I'm not kidding when I say if there's water around, she will seek it out and be perfectly happy for a good 30 minutes. I figured she would love the splash park.

Apparently she didn't love it like I thought she would. Perhaps she didn't like getting her hair wet? Perhaps the water was too cold? Or perhaps she was just being a DI.VA! While the other kids ran around and played and had a great time, little miss decided to just watch. I couldn't believe it. Of all the places she should have been happiest, this should have been near the top of the list!

Eventually she came around and dipped a toe in but not without some shoving gentle coaxing.

Event then, though, she only splashed around for maybe 10 minutes. Then it was back to the sidelines. Juice in hand, she was content to just hang out. 

She likes to save those trying special moments just for me...
