Honestly I am crazy when it comes to packing when we are going somewhere for the day. I make sure we have everything we need and of course a little more. I think I drive Matt crazy...actually I know I drive him crazy. Sorry babe! =) You just never know what situations are going to arise with a 20 month old.
We were able to use our free military passes for Matt and I, and Mady was of course free. Score! We ended up only paying for parking, a locker and our lunch. Not too shabby.
When we first got there, Mady was so excited. "Wagler" everywhere!!! The smile on her face was priceless.

First stop, kiddie pool number one. Mady was very nervous in the beginning. She would just wander around the outside skirts of the pool and sit herself in one of the chairs. Matt and I would attempt to take her in the water but she would cling to us and cry. I was seriously wondering if we made a mistake by bringing her. She usually LOVES the water. Finally, she warmed up to it and had an absolute blast. I think it was just a lot for her at once. Spraying water everywhere, lots of kiddos and just a lot of noise in general.

We hung out at this pool for a little while and then decided to head to another kiddie pool. I liked this one a lot better. More stuff for them to do. Mady would pick one slide and pretty much spend the majority of her time there.

|All she wanted for lunch was fruit. Typical Mady|
|Yes she had to have her blankie in 90 degree weather|
|Momma got to relax a little bit too. Stupid water got on the carmera!|
Overall, it was such a fun day. I am so glad we were able to go and make memories as a family. I love days like that.
Oh and I was in bed by 8:30...chasing around a 20 month old is quite exhausting but oh so much fun! =)
