Last Hurrah of Summer

Yesterday four moms from our playgroup took our six children to Walsenburg, CO to Wild Waters Water Park. It was a long day, Walsenburg is about 75 miles over La Veta Pass from Alamosa, but it was a lot of fun!

They have a zero entry pool with a platform in the middle full of water sprays that the kids can turn on and off.

They have a lazy river area.

They have two water slides. The yellow one requires a tube, which they provide. The green one is for people only - no tubes.

All the kids loved the slides. Carrying your tube up the stairs repeatedly really wears out an 8 year old.

As you can see in the above picture, they had single tubes and two person tubes.

They also have a deep pool with a diving board, a short slide for little kids in the zero entry part and ample shade with lounge chairs for the grown-ups. However all the moms in our group got in on the fun, going down the slides and relaxing in the lazy river area.

If you are ever in the Walsenburg area in the summer, this is a really fun place to spend a day. They do not allow you to bring in food but they will stamp your hand so you can take your picnic lunch to the park next door and then return. The park has ample picnic tables.

That looks like a lot of fun. La Veta Pass...La Veta is where Ricky Tims lives and where they used to film The Quilt Show. Did you ever get to go? I have never been to a water park. It looks like fun!
