Aransas Pass Aquatic Center

A couple of weekends ago Jimmy and I took the kids to Aransas Pass. I had heard about this great pool that they had with slides like Schlitterbahn. Well, I love Schlitterbahn, but for right now it is too big for us. Meagan and Garrett are five years apart and like totally different things when it comes to places like Schlitterbahn. Anyway, this park sounded perfect for us. As you can see, it was!

I LOVE the look on Garrett's face in this picture!

There is something for the entire family at this pool. They have three slides: a short green one that makes you go really fast, a blue one that is open on the top, and a yellow one that is totally enclosed (think Soda Straws at Schlitterbahn).

They have a huge kiddie area where Garrett played for most of the day. There are several things to interact with in this area like these umbrellas. Jimmy and Garrett pretended that they were in jail and the water was like the bars.

They also have a high and low diving board. Meagan jumped off of the low diving board several times, swimming to the side each time with no problem. The water is 13 feet deep! I am so proud of her. She is really doing well.

I am so glad that there is something like this within driving distance to us because it has been so HOT lately! I think we will be making lots of trips to it now that we know exactly where it is and just how much fun it is!
