Handling, nearly two toddlers is a lot of work. 🙂 It seems like we’re always on the go these days and sometimes feels like we’re running out of fuel alot of the time. But….we love it. We love being parents. We’re still getting used to it though, before kids, we could leave the house with just a 20 minute notice, when now it seems like it takes us an hour to an hour and a half just to get everyone ready, packed-up and ready to leave the house. But it’s ok, it’s worth it because we usually have a great time once we are out and about. We like to frequent our local YMCA because our summers are HOT, and they have a lot of activities for the kids, including this little splash area they love to play in.

Take a look at my hubby, he likes to get in and splash around with the girls. 🙂


We will typically pack-up an ice chest before we go so that we can have some lunch and snacks for us and the girls. The heat and the water can get you pretty tiresome pretty quickly, so we like to take frequent breaks and refuel. But then it’s back to splash time again!

Here is list of what we typically pack-up in our ice chest:

Turkey and cheese sandwiches
Water bottles for everyone
Juice Boxes for the girls
Baby snack puffs for baby
SNICKERS® for hubby
Pack of Dr Pepper


My hubby’s FAVORITE candy of all time, ever since he was a little boy has been SNICKERS®. So that is a MUST. I think he gets one every time we go grocery shopping, usually on the way out, at the checkout line at our local Wal Mart.

He considers a SNICKERS® bar his favorite go-to refueling snack. My favorite has got to be an ice cold Dr Pepper. It’s refreshing after a hot summer’s day for sure.

    The splash park looks like so much fun! I was at one last month and wished I could join the kids but I didn’t have a swimsuit! #client
