Soak City

After Morgan swam her 100 laps at her swim-a-thon last month she got to pick a prize. She got tickets to Soak City in Palm Springs. So yesterday was the day. My friend Ruth & Morgan's friend Caleb and myself loaded up at 9 am and headed out for a day of fun and sun. It was REALLY hot out there. About 110 degrees or so and the water as at around 74 degrees. It was really fun though and though we said we were gonna leave around 3pm we lost track of time & about shut the place down. Ruth and I had to carry the tubes up the flights of stairs because the kids were dying so needless to say I am feeling it in my butt today! ;) A great work out to say the least.
This pitch black water slide was the kids favorite. No thanks. Once was enough for me last year to realize its HOT and you cant breath when you are going down. (I know I'm getting old) But the kids must have gone up and down dragging ruth about 6 times. :)
We ate lunch, hung out and just surfed the waves all day.
Thanks for a REALLy fun day Morgan, Ruth and Caleb! Same time, same place next year?
Ruth made me promise if this ended up on my blog that I would pick only the good pictures. :) The funny thing is how do you have any good photos when everybody is burnt and water logged? ;) I think all in all they turned out ok. :) Ruth, I was nice and left the one of you coming out of the tube with your legs flying through the air! he,heee! ;)

Ruth is one brave girl ;) Glad you guys ended up having fun and that you didn't melt right onto the pavement there. Looks like it wasn't crowded either.

Glad you guys had fun. I haven't been to a waterpark in years. I'm so jealous!

What fun! Wish I could have joined you! It might have helped me during this Texas dry and hot spell. How is Ruth? So great to see pictures of her. Tell her I said hello!
