If you are one of the moms that’s thought “Holy Cow, where has the summer gone?” you still have a month to LIVE IT UP!!  You know that HUGE brightly colored play land with water that you can see from the freeway, the one that the kids ALWAYS ask “Mom, when can we go to COWABUNGA BAY?” well it’s worth fitting in one last Hoorah before fall.

We spent an evening in this WONDERLAND, a couple hours was perfect for our family.  I felt like I was on vacation for those couple hours.  The music transported me to Hawaii and at every turn were fun colorful signs that solidified we were in the right spot.

The ringing bell told us to  hurry our little tushes to the HUGE bucket of water for a COLD surprise!

I loved that all 4 of my little ones (ages 1 to 7) could go on the slides while the wading pool was a family favorite! Bonus: the tubes were FREE!

Hurry, “Cowagunga Gay” as my little 3 year old says closes the end of September and although that may be a month away it will be here before you know it. Make sure to check out the hours and options for admission.  They make it super EASY!
