Summer Fun!

It's that time of year where school's out, temperatures are rising and all the local pool's are open for the summer season. In another post I commented how I love that AZ has lots of free Splash Parks. Well at most Jr. Highs and High schools out here in AZ they have out door public pools. So today we took the boys to the Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center out here in Chandler. And of course it is next to the Basha High School. I can't just tell you how awesome this place is without showing you so I have included pictures from their web page as well as the family pictures we took.

Kevin and the boy's!

Me and the boys!

Andrew, Hunter & Parker all ready to go!

Andrew coming down the water slide. Hunter and Parker were to short to ride it and they were pretty upset about that. But they had smaller water slides for the younger kids!

These 2 pictures are of the Family play pool with zero-depth entry, toddler slides, and the 752-Gallon "Big Blue Bucket."

These 2 pictures are of the lazy river and the red buckets that fill up than dump down on you in the river.

This picture below is of the Water Vortex. They used some kind of jets to create a pretty strong whirlpool that the kids loved.

This place was amazing it not only had the water slides, lazy river, and the water toys but there was a separate large competition and lap pool there also. We had a blast and look forward to going back all summer. Bye the it only cost .50 cents for the boys and a $1.50 for Kevin and I. AWESOME!

I heard about this place a few weeks ago, and I went to the website and thought the prices really must have been raised by now. So glad to hear they haven't been! I'm definitely going.

Laural Chandler is right next to Phoenix and they have other Aquatic Centers all over Chandler. It's opened every day but you would have to go to the web page for the summer hours change a little in August. But you just can't beat that price for a small water park.
