Pirates Cove Family Aquatic Center

Families come from all over the metro area to visit Pirates Cove. With easy access in a suburban area, Pirates Cove is a great water park for families looking for fun close to home. It is also a much more manageable size (and price) than larger water parks. Opening day is this Saturday, May 29! Residents in both the Englewood and South Suburban Recreation Districts receive discounts for single day admissions and season passes.

Through May 31, use the ONLINE COUPON to receive a free admission to The Wildlife Experience when you purchase the Captains Pass (10 visits at a discounted rate) for Pirates Cove.

Kids of all ages will love this water park. We took our kids for the first time last year and we had a blast! We waded in the kiddie pool, splashed in the fountains, drifted around the lazy river and even played in the sand yard. Lockers are readily available, food is priced reasonably (it is a theme park, so it's not exactly cheap either), and the park is compact in design (in other words, you can do more swimming and less walking).

Is it busy? Oh, yeah. You'll want to come early for the best parking (which is free) and secure your beach chairs for the day. Bring plenty of sunscreen and get ready to play! The best part, like with any outdoor and water related activity, is that your kids will be wiped out after a day at Pirates Cove. And if you're a resident of Englewood or South Suburban, you can probably even make it home before they fall asleep in the car.

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
