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!!
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!
