I mentioned last week how my posts were out-of-order? Well this post is about events that happened from June 27th – 30th! I just haven’t had the time to post and edit all the pictures right away. I don’t know how other bloggers do it.
Anyway, TWO weeks ago, our nephew Deke came to stay with us for a few days. Something we’ve been wanting for years and we finally got our wish… but oh boy what a bad week we picked weather wise! It was so hot. Or may be it such a bad thing since we spent two days doing water activities and the kids had a great time.
Day 1, was spent at the pool. Deke, who I remember holding in my arms in deeper waters not that long ago has graduated to jumping off diving boards.
Of course, S who worships the ground he walks on had to do the same. She can swim but I was nervous. I think I stopped breathing for a few minutes. All I know is that when she surfaced, I gasped for air like a dying fish.
Day 2, a disgustingly hot and humid day started off with a jog. Remember I was still in my 4 mile race training. Deke wanted to come so we winded up jog-walking for two miles, about all we could handle with the heat. Then, we were off to Keansburg Amusement Park, which thankfully had a water park.
Now for anyone reading this who’s a NJ resident, the dry park isn’t worth a long trip. But for a 40 minute ride, I would go back for the water park.
There’s a cute water play area and some slides perfect for smaller, less adventurous kids. Then there was larger tube slides, a lazy river, a hot tub and a rope swim jump. There were plenty of chairs available to park your stuff.
Did I mention that S had a great time? Hopefully so did Deke. Hopefully, he’ll want to come back again. We loved having him.
