The Longbranch Lagoon

We spent a couple of days with Steve's parents in Dodge City. One of the highlights was visiting the new city pool complex, which was pretty impressive!

The water park is called The Longbranch Lagoon, a pun that went right over my girls' heads. It made me giggle, though. Since this is Dodge City, the pools have a Western theme,

complete with rattlesnakes spitting water in the kiddie pool!
The girls didn't care about that, though. They were thrilled that there were giant water slides!

Eventually, I even tried the slides, which was perhaps the most un-Mom thing I have ever done. I don't like heights or rollercoasters or most water slides (and I didn't like the red and pink slide because you are in total darkness) but I really enjoyed this yellow boomerang one.

The girls talked their Uncle Brian into coming to the pool, too, and they floated around the lazy river together.

They played in the wave pool and insisted that Brian and Grandma watch them try out all the smaller slides in the park, as well as their underwater handstands and somersaults. Then it was back to the big slides for another turn. Or two. Or three.
The water park was a lot of fun and a great way to start our family vacation!
