Has anyone been out to Hawk Island since they built the splash pad? I was there today, and it was AMAZING! I was thinking that we should set up a regular summer playdate out there. Did I mention its totally free on the weekdays? Check it out!<br><br><a href="http://www.ingham.org/PK/HI/hisplash.htm" target="_blank">http://www.ingham.org/PK/HI/hisplash.htm</a>

I would love to do Hawk Island <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. I can most likely take a day off for a weekday outing, but I would need to wait until the kids got out of school....so, maybe the 2nd week in June? Most likely that Thursday or Friday.........unless they have a day off of school before that...but I will have to check the Lansing school district calendar...davi, do you know if there are anymore days off this year?

Count us in. We were there this morning and the splash pad wasn't working. Gage didn't seem to mind he just went in the swimming hole in his clothes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

How old do they need to be to appreciate something like this? My DD is not walking yet (excellent crawler though).

--yes, that for me too...to fit into my work schedule <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. Again, best for us to wait until kids are out of school..(or until later in the day, but I am not sure how late you can go? maybe if I read the link you gave, huh?) but that is only 2 more weeks! (I feel you davi <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">, but at the same time..it means my due date is closer and I am ready to be done now!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> )

Its on cement, so crawling might be a problem. But YOU could put your bathing suit on and run through the water fountains with her?! I saw lots of parents doing that and their babies were having a ball. Even if she didnt like it, you could still come and socialize. There are a lot of nice shaded areas.

Well, I'd be up for trying it! Especially if we have more days like today . . .<br>
DH was off today so we had planned a trip to Potter Park Zoo (DD LOVES animals), but should have rescheduled because of the weather, poor girl was so hot. I almost had him stop at Hawk Island on the way back to let her play in the water and cool down, but she was so tired she pretty much passed out in the car before we'd left the parking lot!<br><br><br>
Best laid plans . . . .sigh . . .<br><br>
The best days for me are wednesdays and fridays.

This Friday it isnt going to be as hot and sunny as it will be tomorrow.<br><br>
I plan on spending the better half of our day there, so anyone who wants to join me is more than welcome. I do not tolerate the heat very well AT ALL! This place is going to save my life this summer. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I live just behind Hawk Island, so it's an easy walk. Sorry I missed it this week, I just had too many errands and I don't check the posts often enough. Let me know when you're going to be there in the future and I'll meet you.
