I have all kinds of things that I’ve been mulling and I want to write about, but until I get the chance—seriously, will someone tell these kids to give me five damn minutes to myself?—I will give you this piece of photography advice:

Splashparks are the best place in the world to take photographs.


Oh, wait. That was when everything was turned off because of the thunderstorm. Yes, the sky is blue. No, I don’t get it either. Shortly thereafter the water turned on. It was all kinds of super fun after that. I wanted to share, like, 20 photos with you, but I managed to pare it down. My kids are cute. Also, Sam and Jack look EXACTLY alike.

Three in one shot! That NEVER happens!

If *I* can get these fun shots, imagine what someone who actually knows what to do with a camera could get.


Also, do you remember back at Jack’s hockey tournament when he choked on all that bacon? I finally got around to taking the first aid class I swore I would take. It was not only informative, but all kinds of fun. I wrote about it over at White Knuckle Parenting. Check it out!

  1. Beautiful pictures!!!  And a better job than I did at the splash park a week ago…all the pics I took of my daughter, she had her tongue sticking out. Apparently she was concentrating very hard on having fun….

  2. That looks like a really fun splash park! I am a huge fan of splash parks and I would like to know why they don’t have lots and lots more of them.

  3. Jean, this is the Splash Playground in South Germantown, right?  Great pictures!

  4. Woohoo! Great pictures. I wish I was in a splash park. It has been sooo hot.

  5. There’s a very small fountain / splash area in the Rockville town center – near the library.  It looks to be free.  However, it doesn’t come close to the one in your photos! 
    This reminds me – really need to go back to the pool at the Y.  If I had a flattering swimsuit, that is.  :)

  6. Look like you and your kids had an awesome time at the water park. Teach them what a combination of water and the sun does for plants with Jordan and Justine’s Weekend Adventures! http://jordangogreen.com/

  7. I can’t tell Sam and Jack apart at all. If they’re in the same picture I can but if they’re separate and their hair is slicked down then they are exactly alike. Crazy. Thank goodness for Quinn and his golden hair.
