An Alabama Summer is not complete without a visit to Water Park. I have fond memories of slipping and sliding in my front yard to cool off from the Summer heat. We visited Water Parks often. I would spend hours in the wave pool. On special nights the park even showed a movie and you could float in the wave pool and enjoy it all.

Colorful waterpark tubes and a swimming pool. Outdoor shot.

My mom loved the Water Parks, neighborhood community pools, and the beach. For two main reasons, she would get to relax while I wore myself out swimming and being in the sun. It made for a quiet evening. Parents know exactly what I’m talking about. Wink! Wink!
