The pool isn't free this summer. Bummer. But the beach is still free and the splash park is still free. We had a great time Monday. L is so cute standing at the edge of the water throwing fist fulls of sand into the water. He gets brave and lets go of my leg, then the water comes and he's right back to my leg. At the splash park he was just so delighted. I'm looking forward to going every week. Last year we were so busy going to the free pool every day, that we hardly went to the beach and didn't go tot he splash park at all. They were all free but I was valuing the pool as something I was getting for free... Sometimes a door closes and a window with a splash park opens!
