Fun Friday: Surprise!
Pretty much the whole day was fun. (Does anything scream fun more than a giant Lite Brite?) Actually, the fun started around 7:30 when Jack woke me up to notify me that he had seen the neighbor's grandson arrive at her house and could he please go play right now? So after breakfast and putting on real clothes, they played. Jack was having a field trip day and the other boy is out of school now, and I came in to find them playing math on the white board. Odd.
Later we went to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum as a go-along with our current FIAR book, The Glorious Flight.
The last time we went here, we had a baby bathroom emergency and we missed the planetarium show. Thankfully we are no longer dealing with such things, and we got to enjoy the show!
The big surprise came after the museum. I didn't tell the kids where we were going until we were almost there--we had to drive past it on the highway to get there, so Jack saw it. This is a new thing at the Oklahoma Aquarium for the summer called the Extreme Water Park and they were having a free opening night. Calling this an Extreme Water Park is kind of like calling your school carnival Disneyland or your kid's track meet the Olympics, but the kids had a lot of fun.
It was really windy so they were not able to set up the huge water slide, but the kids found lots to do.
Both of them liked the obstacle course.
Jack pretty much never stopped moving except to have some cake.
He even ran from slide to slide. We were there for four hours and he totally crashed when he got in bed.
We'll probably go back once more this summer so Jack can try the giant water slide. It's kind of pricey for hosed-down inflatables, but they really did enjoy it and would have stayed longer if they could have.
Alice said the evening was so much cool. I'm thinking about stealing that phrase.
