I think we're crazy, but we decided to head to the beach on July 4th. Traffic was horrible and the inlet parking was closed by 9:30 am. We finally found a parking spot at the Convention Center on 40th Street. The sun was HOT, but the water was oh so cold. You could not walk across the sand! And it was crowded!! But we had fun and didn't get too burnt.
We had a rain day, but the next day we made it to Frontier Town and the Water Park. It was the first time the kids have ever been to a water park. There was a height restriction of 42" and I think Jason made it in by a hair. I ended up having him wear swimmies the entire time and he had a ball. There was a lazy river, 2 tube slides and a speed slide. Click on the picture to enlarge and I think you can see Jason's smiling face :)
