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.

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

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  whole being rejoices;      my
