Shipwreck Island

Before we left town for our extended St. Petersburg stay, we had a really fun weekend here in Jacksonville. I already told you about the Riverside Arts Market and Pogopalooza from that Saturday, and on Sunday we took advantage of Teacher Appreciation Days at Adventure Landing's Shipwreck Island water park!

Shipwreck Island!

Looks like we're in for some fun!

We had a great time! The biggest hit was the tiny little splash pad for kids adjacent to the wave pool. We spent the most time there.

E.J. LOVED it.

Ellie also liked the wave pool. She learned quickly that the loud noise meant "the ocean" was coming, but she felt safe in Daddy's arms!

She also liked to sit on the edge and let the waves go over her feet!

We also ventured over to the larger kids splash area, but all the water was too loud for Ellie's taste and she wasn't into it. At one point she did say she wanted to go down the slide, though. She immediately changed her mind, but I ran with it. She enjoyed it but didn't want to go again!

Here we come!


We also tried the lazy river. Ellie went with Eric and seemed to enjoy it until they got to the far-too-loud-for-Ellie splashing water part.

They look relaxed!

E.J. and I took a turn, too. He was also a little nervous during the splashing part, but did well!

Safety first!

Happy boy!

It was a great morning of summer fun!
