Riding on a train and swimming

We had planned on going swimming all day….but the weather was hit and miss…so we decided to take the kids on a train ride. It was so much fun! They had not ever been on a train and this was a cheap way to enjoy it!

Swimming plans were put on hold as the weather started to rain and thunder. We headed to Fred’s sister Tanya’s house for lunch. While ordering pizza, the weather seemed to clear up, so we decided to eat quick and then head out. But….the weather went up and down, while eating, it started to downpour and thunder. The kids were really sad. We relaxed and had tea (which was accompanied by wonderful candy and desserts).

It was about 4 pm. when the weather seemed to settle and was very warm out, so we decided to go see what we could find. At the first place, it was $10-14 a person for only one hour and we had to pay for the ones who were not swimming. We decided to try a new place.
We found a place that was $5 each, so that was great! They had lots of fun…

It was a great day! They were all tired and had so much fun! P. and H. got their girl cousins to jump off the diving board which was fun to watch!

    hmmm, seems a bit of a shame to have to pay to go to a pool in the “land of 10,000 lakes”! But looks like they had fun.
