Beating the Heat
One of my favorite pastimes is to make fun of Louisville, but lately I'm having trouble doing that. The city built an amazing water park. It's clean, everything works, and the water is so cold and so refreshing. I literally could stand under one of the flowers in the pic above from now until late September.
One of the amazing by-products of being a parent is that I do shit that I wouldn't do if I didn't have kids like going to a water park or getting wet at a water park. But since I am a father I took both of my kids and did the unthinkable... I got wet and made the kids get wet. And amazingly enough we all love to get soaked at the water park now. I don't mind standing under the freezing water one bit. Maybe it's all the damn Zoloft I take or maybe its because its so hot outside. I really hope the city takes care of this park and if they have to raise my taxes to pay for the water bill so be it.
The scenery surrounding the water park ain't bad either. It was built right next to the Ohio and there are hills, woods, multiple playgrounds, and snakes. It's a really nice park. Thumbs up to all the good citizens of Louisville who made it happen.
