This is one of the city’s older splash pads. It still draws kids from the neighborhood. As I was walking around getting pics and trying to find the activator (I don’t think this park has one) a kid with one of those water guns blasted me with water. I kind of laughed it off, then he shot me again. Lil’ brat. I would have probably done the same thing when I was five or six, then my mom would have spanked me, and I would never do that again.. at least when she was around.
At this particular stop a woman asked what I was doing. I get it, it looks strange for a grown man to take pictures of kids in a park. I scrolled through the pics so she could see I meant no harm. Was I offended? Not at all. I was glad someone was keeping an eye on things. To be honest… I half expected someone to call the police on me. I really do make an effort not to show too much of the kids, but sometimes it is impossible to find a park without the kiddoes.
