Turner Park is one of two splash pads in our area we hope to check out this summer. Splash pads must be a new thing. I don't remember ever hearing about them until I was pregnant. Us 80s kids definitely missed out on some serious fun, it's a great idea!
Since this was Harry's first time at a splash pad we weren't sure how he'd react. He hates getting water on his face during bath time (a trait passed down from me, I still can't handle getting water in my eyes!) so I thought the shooting water might be a bit intense for him.
But, Harry enjoyed it. He made sure not to get too close to the water so his face stayed pretty dry. He kept trying to grab the sprays, something he does in the bath, too.
We were at the park for about 45 minutes when he started getting bored. So we packed up and headed back home.
Here are a few more shots at the splash pad.
(His rash guard is this one from Water Wear and I got his swim trunks on clearance a while back. The sun glasses were a gift last summer. Not sure of the brand, but they're the only ones Harry will keep on! They're a bit small now but he enjoys wearing them.)
