At long last, we were able to coordinate a visit to our local Parks & Rec office to get the picture ID’s needed for all three of us if we were to visit our community pool. The office is only open from 9-5 and I spent all last summer not being able to muster up the wherewithal to coordinate both of us leaving work early with necessary paperwork in hand, etc. etc. But last week’s heatwave gave me a much-needed kick in the pants, and we are now the owners of three hilarious picture IDs.
On Sunday, then, when it was supposed to reach 97 degrees, we were there two minutes before the pool opened at 11:00, armed only with sunscreen and bath towels. The pool was even better that I had expected. It was three pools actually. There’s a baby pool with a whale slide in the middle:
Then, there’s something I hadn’t seen before – a medium pool that went from 2 feet to, I think 3.5 feet. Owen could stand at the shallower end and have the water come up to his neck. After initial surprise, he enjoyed that very much – walking neck-deep in cool water. And then there was a big pool with a diving board and triple covered slide at the deep end.
We stayed about an hour and a half and had a lovely and refreshing time. There were a lot of people there by the time we left, but it wasn’t too crowded. And there were trees here and there for shade. We are looking forward to making many more pool excursions!
