Little Miss walked all around the splash part - she watched the kids shrieking and playing and getting soaked, then she came back and told me she was going to the playground area. Okay, whatever. Play over there in your bathing suit. Just don't get hurt.
I actually succeeded in reading some of my book. I'm struggling with the joy that comes with that as I feel I've neglected to watch my kid while I was immersed in a book. However, nothing untoward happened with all the other kids and parent and school groups around.
Little Miss did finally get almost wet, but she is so hesitant to play in the various streams of water. She talked to some of the bigger kids, stuck her arm through a water jet, but would not really go in and play.

Next time we go we will have to bring more kids along (including older Sis who is still in school until tomorrow.) I suspect she's more likely to play in the water with someone she actually knows. She loves the sprinker at home - how is this any different?!
I know it's the 4 year old mentality I've discussed in other posts, but it can be frustrating. At least there were climbers for her to exhaust herself on as well. We had a good morning anyway.
