went to the ankeny splash park this morning!

It took about ten minutes for Oliver to get used to all the sprays and splashes, but then he just LOVED it! It's so nice that it's free for a couple hours in the morning - we came home, ate lunch, and he took a great nap! I think we'll be spending a lot of time there this summer. (And I just ordered a gypsymama water wrap for Finn....)

Re: went to the ankeny splash park this morning!

  • Sounds fun!! We drove by one in Cedar Rapids and it looked awesome! What's a gypsymama water wrap??

    This!

  • That water wrap is a great idea!  I wish there was something just like the splash park in the western suburbs. From what I have heard, the clive aquatic center is cool, but probably too much to handle on my own w/ a toddler and an infant.  I like how I don't have to worry about drowning at the splash park.  I don't think I'd get enough use out of the water wrap to justify the cost since it would take a trip to ankeny all the time. If we lived closer I'd definitely get it though!

  • are there splash parks/wading pools in WDM? We went to Ashby Park in DM a lot once Oli was walking last summer. I know there are several wading pools in DM that are fenced in, so you don't have to go chasing kiddos around with a baby in your arms.

    I'm hoping so! It has great reviews on www.thebabywearer.com. Oliver was dragging DH all over the splash park, but I tried not to get too wet with Finn in our stretch wrap. I'm sure when I take the boys by myself I'll have to get wet, so hopefully this'll be perfect for us!
