Fun at the Spray Park

I decided to switch Cameron’s preschool days.  He was originally going to school on Sundays and Tuesdays.  This meant that I had to get him up and out the door for school at 7:15 a.m. on the day after the weekend (our school and work weeks are Sun – Thurs).  As of this week, he is going on Monday & Wednesday.

Today is a Sunday.  I didn’t leave the house until 8:30 so I could play squash with a friend while Cameron watched/played and ran around the nearby court.

Afterwards, I took him to this FANTASTIC Spray Park. It’s about 10 minutes from our house and you might remember me mentioning it in an earlier post about a near-panic attack from heat because we walked around the ENTIRE park.  Today – we walked in and paid our dirham for entering the park (about $.27) and headed 500 feet to the water park area.

We were the only patrons there.  I think there were about 8 lifeguards on hand and Cameron had a BLAST!!


This was his favorite thing to do.  I think he went up and down 50 times!  P1040621


There was someone to help at the top…..P1040622

There was one large water play structure. 



There were bumper boats.  Even though he wasn’t “bumping” anyone, he still enjoyed riding it around.




There was a non-water structure and when Cameron headed to it, one of the lifeguards threw water on the slide so it wouldn’t be hot and he came flying down it!



There was a “lazy river” where you could ride the yellow inner-tube down the river……..


Cameron also enjoyed doing the remote control Dhow Boat Races.  Granted he was racing nobody, but he still had fun!



There were also a few things that Cameron didn’t partake in…..

There’s the Water Balloon Fight…………                        The rubber-band-kid-flying contraption…..                     Some kind of bucking surfboard


The big kids can’t wait to check it out!
