SLAP: Sandy Lake Amusement Park

Okay, so I am behind on my blogging.
It's been crazy for the past several days.
So, before I post about the most recent happenings, I have to play catch up!

Sandy Lake Park....
...I hadn't been there since I was a kid.
My grandpa took my uncles there when they were kids & taught them how to fish (according to my Gammy). My parents took us there when we were kids.

So---randomly, I decided to take Gage. I took Ruby & Allen too, since Allen is up visiting Dad for the Summer.


We did the amusement area rides first.
General admission cost is $2, but Gage was free! After that, you use tickets for the rides. Tickets are 50 cents each. After the amusement rides, we had a picnic lunch...

After that...we were off to the paddle boats (5 tickets each). Gage really wasn't sure that he wanted to do the paddle boats at first, but he ended up agreeing to it, and we had fun.

After that....we headed over to the pool. $5 each to get it, except Gage, who again, was free!

The water doesn't go over 3 feet, so Gage LOVED it. He could touch everywhere!

The best part about the whole day: it was sooooooo not crowded on a Tuesday.
I know, it certainly wasn't fabulous for the owner(s), but it was great for us. When we arrived, there were only 3 cars of people there. We were one of those cars. There was NOBODY there!
At one point in the afternoon, one of the owners asked us if we were going to return to the amusement park rides, since we were happily camped out by the pool. Since we were the only family there at 3:20 in the afternoon, he was going to go ahead & close that area early, and let the employees go on home. Not a problem with us! We were content to stay there at the pool. Having the whole place to ourselves was AWESOME!

So---Sandy Lake Park. Go on a Tuesday!!!!

After that, Dad cooked out on the grill for us when he got home from work.
Gage happily snacked on chocolate candy that Gammy gave him...

Allen in the backyard...

It was a very long, but very fun-filled day!

Been to Sandy Lake and liked it. It gets kind of pricey with 4 kids but there are actually rides that Zakary can get on!!!

Dude, I'd love a pool that doesn't go over three feet. OK, at 3B's height, let's say two feet, but still...I love that idea. Plus, carnies--bonus!

First glance I was wondering how you got pool pictures without anyone else in the background...Tuesday it is! We went a few weekends ago and it was packed, not so packed that I didn't get a lounge chair but still pretty full.
