New Swimming Hole!

I put Anna's hair in pig tails, which proved to be a stroke of brilliance, as little brown wet heads all start to look the same in a crowded pool. Her piggies made her easy to spot.

We found a new great place for family activities, the East Portland Community Center. We attended a birthday party in a room poolside, then we all got to jump in the awesome pool. They have fitness classes, swim lessons, and a variety of other services available. I’m so glad to know about this great place!

 

Poolside Party Room

The birthday party was in this room. It was really reasonable for a party package. $175 for 30-50 people. The hosts brought in the food and beverages, and everyone had access to the pool.

 

EPCC Pool

This pool was awesome. Giant spiral slide, lazy river (which was a little aggressive, BTW), zero-entry beach, and a shark-shaped tiny kids slide.

EPCC Pool 2

The pool splits into a deeper section, there's a hot tub (no kids allowed), and a whole separate pool for swimming laps. Even though it was indoors, there was a lot of natural light so it didn't feel like torture to be indoors!

Eric had to wear a wristband because he's shorter than 48". At one point, I asked him if he wanted to float the river with me. He said, "Nah. Oh wait! This bracelet means we have to stick together, so OK." Sweetest boy!!

 

We’re going to look into year-round swim lessons (since we didn’t have much of a summer in Oregon this year!), and see what other classes they have to offer. Maybe this would be a good venue for my “naked toy” party idea I’ve been stewing on!

Do you take advantage of community centers? How do you use them?

Cheers,
