...and at a place that we have frequented since our children were little. It was known as the Trans-Canada Waterslides in those days...and was quite close to home...and had evening rates of $5...and so we went as a family. It seems we once went while Heidi was at a friend's place...and so she missed out on one occasion...and for all these years we have been accused of planning family outings to the waterslides without her. Yesterday we had a family outing to the waterslides...and no one was left out!

We don't mind getting wet in the summertime...not when it is 29 degrees Celsius...and we are in our swim suits. And it's all the more fun if we are in good company...
Ryder and Ranen took very good care of their cousin...
...when they weren't too busy frolicking in the water.
What fun those two have together!
Emme and Spencer brought a friend...and tried every slide on for size. I caught them on the run...as they were off to make the next trip down.
As for Grandpa...Ryder took him down the slide...and they were both all smiles...before they hit the water. And Grammy's favorite tube ride was still there...unchanged after all these years...and so she took one ride down for old times sake. Thankfully I left my prescription sunglasses behind...because they would have been lost in the rapids! I had visions of riding down...sitting nicely on the tube...and sailing smoothly across the last pond. It didn't quite turn out that way...but I did finish together with my tube!
It was a fun time! We hadn't been there since 1991...and it seemed like yesterday. The rates have gone up a little (quite a little)...the park is now called Bridal Falls Waterpark...but the fun remains the same. Maybe we'll go again one day...if our grands invite us. Getting wet is quite okay once in awhile!
Have a great day...
