D'oh!

When I saw the weather forecast for this morning, I thought that it would be a good day to hit the water park at Canada's Wonderland. At no point did it occur to me that the park would be closed due to all the staff starting grade 10 this week. Sometimes I forget that the world does not revolve around me. Sadly, I had Pumpkin all excited about going on a water slide. We went on one earlier in the season, and she just loved it. So we got to the entrance of the park, only to be denied access.

I had to somehow redirect her excitement to the splash pad near our house, 'cause that was the best I could do on short notice. Two-year-olds are great that way. I don't know if she understood when I told her that the slide was broken, but she was just as excited when we got out of the car at the familiar park, and saw the same splash pad that she has frequented all summer long. I was the only sad one - I really wanted to go on the water slide!

as long as you didn't slug any inanimate objects, it wasn't too bad of a day. ;) And thank heaven for 2 year olds. My nearly 5 year old would not get over it as quickly! ;)

I hate when that happens. The Boy would have spent the day saying "Waterpark closed! Where the Waterpark go?"
