Boy oh Boy, I must *heart* them.

I went to Calypso Waterpark today.  What I should actually say is "I finally caved and went to Calypso today."  My nieces, who have season passes and are staying with us for a few weeks (or indefinitely.  depends on whether I return them or not), have been telling me over and over again how much they want me to go with them when they go - which is often given I live no more than 15 minutes away.  As always I say that I am just too insecure and self conscience.  I remind them that I work in the community and the likelihood of me running into current and past students is very high ... and I will be in a bathing suit.  In public.  Where people can see me.

It was 3:30, overcast and later in the day so I decided why not.  Let's make them happy.  And it did.  Given my fears and overweighted-ness, I chose not to do any of the slides however, I did spend a great deal of time in Jungle Run while they went on other rides and we had a blast in the wave pool.  It actually drove me insane not going on the slides.  They looked like soooo much fun and, if you know me (I mean really know me), you will understand what this decision was like for me and how loathesome I felt in the body with these limitations.  I am truly more in my element when I am in water than when I am on ground.  (or so I think)  I adore swimming and being in the water and wet and playing and just hanging around.  I am certain that I was a fish of some sort in my past life given my history with swimming pools in this one. 

What today has taught me is that next year I will be getting a season pass of my own.  Even if its just to sit and relax with a book with occassional visits to the wave and lazy pools, or to get off my ass now and get myself in a comfortable place so that I can ride the hell out of the slides next year, I will be there quite frequently.   I cant think of a better way to spend my summers off.  Neices, friends and water!

Sounds really fun. We tried Wild Water Kingdom in TO....just the kiddie stuff and I felt like I was on was just such a good feeling being around all the water and sun. Must check this new park out.
