Oquirrh Shadows Park - Splash Pad

Oquirrh Shadows Park splash pad is another new one for us this Summer. A few of the neighbors invited us to go with them, and we were so happy they introduced us to this splash pad!

From the pictures I looked at originally online, I was a little skeptical that it would be fun for all of my kids. It is getting harder to find things that the almost 12 year old thinks is cool, and the littles too!
Our first trip I told the kids to bring a soccer ball, glove and baseball, and frisbee...just in case they ended up getting bored. This park has a large grassy area that is perfect for this kind of stuff. They had so much fun, we never pulled any of this stuff out.
Our second trip, we still brought all the extra stuff...and they did end up using it. I will say this, they started up a game of soccer with a few of the kids that were at the splash pad too. Warmed my little heart to see it, and they all had blast! 
We have lots of squirt guns and such, the kids always love when the splash pad has a little stream in it so it is easy to fill up all of the water weapons!  This splash pad has a pretty good little stream! And don't forget the buckets that dump on your head, those a favorite too!

This splash pad is in our rotation this Summer, and it has been a nice change of scenery for all of us!
