Our..Summer's-not-over-yet activites

Lately, we've had some cooler weather and it was a reminder to me that fall is right around the corner. It made me realize that we only have like 2 weeks left to enjoy the summertime outdoor pools during the week. And only 3 more weeks till Ellyse starts Kindergarten. AAAAAAAHHHHHHH! Where did the summer go? So, I decided to do some of the things that summertime makes possible this week.
Tuesday, we went to the Clearfield Aquatic Center for the first time ever. They have a neat facility! They have indoor pools and slides and a diving board, lap pools, and a kiddie area, as well as a lazy river type thing all inside. Outside, they have a kiddie pool and a splash pad too. Unfortunately, I failed to get photo's of the indoor stuff. If you have a happening's book, there's a coupon in there for 50% off up to four admissions. We got in for only $4.13! Sweet!
They have some funny rules at this pool. And they stick to them pretty strictly! I guess Allie was about 8 months too old to be in the swing but we didn't find that out till the Nazi lifeguard came and told us. Inside, they wouldn't let you even start the ascent to the big slide until the same Nazi lifeguard gave you the okay from the ground. I guess I should be happy that they enforce the rules but some things are worth letting go.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Allie takes great care of her lounger, making sure it is properly cleaned before she sunbathes.
Monday night we also took the time to go on a beloved bike trailer ride. I really enjoy these rides as do the girls.

FYI. The scar on Allie's face is from the treadmill. Poor girl!

Summer has not ended yet! Yay for summer!
