Spring Valley Beach!

Today, we took the girls (Susannah Grace and her cousin Sydney) to Spring Valley Beach. I don't know who much you know about this attraction, but for some reason I assumed it was like Oak Mountain State Park "beach" area. I was very wrong. It's actually a water park right smack dab in the middle of Blountsville, AL, or in the boonies as we would call it. The girls had a great time. Here are a few photos from our trip.

Getting ready to go down the slide...
That was fun!
Sweet hug :)

Ready for some more water fun!

Cousin Sydney
I was able to get a sweet smile from this little cutie.
See that big blue bucket on top? A bell goes off every so often at the park signaling everyone to watch out! Then, this happens....
Susannah Grace enjoyed watching the big bucket spill over with Meme.
Sydney practices her floating skills!

Here's our best attempt at a group photo with Meme.

Sliding sure is fun!

Can't you tell?
SG also enjoyed splashing!
LOTS of splashing... It was a fun day!

The Beach + Splash Pad

We've been busy busy busy this summer! Here are a few pictures from our very short visit to the beach to visit my grandmother at Fort Walton Beach Hospital. Unfortunately, she fell and broke her hip :(. We took Susannah Grace down to see her and cheer her up. Susannah Grace LOVED seeing her great grandparents but didn't so much love the beach. I guess that is to be expected since we were only able to spend 5 MINUTES there as it began to rain :(. Oh well, better luck next year.

Waiting on the elevator with Daddy...I don't know what Trey was thinking- goofball!
Not so sure about this sand stuff...
Still not amused.
Signal for: "Help me Mommy!"
The wet sand was no better.

On the other hand...This girl LOVES the splash pad in Gardendale, AL!
Can't you tell?
We've been a couple of times this summer with our sweet friend Lola!
Lola doesn't seem to mind playing in the water, either :).
Susannah Grace walks around like she owns the place.
And, sometimes just can't contain her excitement.
Pure joy!
