Rolling Hills Water Park

It was late July and I had just posted a meet up with our playgroup, our destination, Rolling Hills Water Park in Ypsilanti, MI. As a mom I was slightly terrified, how was I going to watch all three kiddos go in three different directions at a water park? Turns out one of the best thing I ever did was to make the event a playdate meet up! Many eyes and hands make for light work when it comes to watching children. Playgroup moms are like an extension of oneself. We each divided and conquered the water park that day. Two moms took a group of kiddos to the lazy river, another two took kids to the water slides, two stayed by the splash area with toddlers, and it was such a relaxing, enjoyable, and fun day for all of us, moms and kiddos. Seven years later and we are still continuing the tradition!

UPDATE: OPENS June 21st, ALL tickets must be purchased ONLINE!!
