Splashy Saturday: Rogers Aquatic Center
Stephanie McCratic | On 18, May 2013
This morning the darling and I headed out for emergency pedicures as soon as I remembered we would be at the new Rogers Aquatic Center (a small waterpark) all day. This is the first public bathing suit wearing of the season, so my plan was distract any onlookers with sparkly fingernails.
Good news! The Rogers waterpart was so much fun nobody gave a flip about my fingernails or my cellulite.
For those of you who are local this is a great family activity. Even better: it’s a great way to guarantee a solid two hour nap from your littles. The center is open 11am-8pm Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6pm on Sunday. Charlie swam swam swam, and went down every little slide (she’s too small for the big kid ones with their 48″ requirement) more times than I could count. She splashed. I chatted with my friends. We ate hot dogs and swam some more.
There was even a trip around the lazy river that might have involved a lifeguard. I couldn’t seem to find my way out.
Thank you City of Rogers and Arkansas Women Bloggers for inviting us to preview the new aquatic center. We approve. It was a super day, and we will be back.
