Today, Ace was invited to the joint birthday party of our great (former) neighbors, brothers Julyan & Charlie. The party was at the fabled Apex Recreation Center, which turned out to be even better than advertised. We're now kicking ourselves for not having visited it before.
Regardless, we had a blast playing in all the pools. After some initial hesitation, Ace ended up LOVING the giant water slide pictured in the background. He and Daddy took many scream-filled rides down it!
