When we got there, they played for about 5-10 minutes and then laid on the cement and whined that they were cold.
This is the part of motherhood that I need to work on. I was actually pretty mad. They were only kids that weren't having a blast, little babies were laying on the fountains just loving it.
I had this little vision of my kids having so much fun (because I would have been loving it if I were a kid!)
So, after a little while of getting mad and them whining we decided to go the regular playground next to it, and then they had a blast.
So, I guess my lesson is that I should be more like my sister-in-law Sherry and make it their problem if they aren't having fun. It shouldn't affect me, right!? I should let them go on their own pace and decide what is fun to them (and not force them to have fun!). It's just hard because water memories are some of my best memories of childhood, and I want that for my kids too.
Also, it doesn't make me use my time to take them fun places!
Anyway, here are some pics of when they did play for a minute:
My other fun thing yesterday was going to the War Bonnett Rodeo and Colin Raye concert with my mother-in-law. That was a lot of fun. I was even on the jumbo-tron a couple of times.
Thanks Verna Rae!
