All summer, we planned on going back. But... we waited. And procrastinated. And we kept choosing to cool off in the pool over tromping around in the heat.
But, August showed up and back-to-school time loomed just ahead, so we finally went. This time we packed a lunch AND met up with friends, making our trip doubly exciting.
Each of the houses is designed based on a classic piece of literature.
The Rainbow Fish treehouse is my favorite.
Why can't I just get a normal smile from my kids once in a while?
I don't remember the book on which this next one is based, but it was a favorite. We just called it the "Giant Ball o' Yarn".
The main attraction for my little guys was the pond and the tadpoles inhabiting said pond.
I know I said Rainbow Fish was my favorite, but maybe it was a tie with this one. Those colors need to get in my house.
All of the kids had lots of fun on the Jolly Roger, trying out their best pirate accents. By the way, my pirate accent sounds like a jumble of Russian, German, and Australian accents.
Fun was had by all, and now we can cross another activity off our summer bucket list. Too bad my summer reading list just got longer.
