As a reward for finishing First Grade ahead of schedule, despite deputation, we promised Elaine a trip to a water park. There is one near my parents called “Pirate’s Cove.” It ended up being very busy…Denver schools get out earlier than NYC! We also had to leave a little early because of a lightning strike in the area. But we still had a great time, and the kids loved that the pool was just their size (depth wise). Uncle Wesley didn’t have much work for that day, so he joined us too! (A pleasant surprise, and I became glad for another pair of adult eyes!).
