Does Going To The Waterpark Count As Exercise?

My family and I have spent A LOT of time at the waterpark this summer. We have the sun tans to prove it. And, yes, we used sunscreen!

Our girls love climbing up the steps to slide down some really big water slides. The inflatables they carry up of those steps are bigger than they are but they don’t seem to care as they laugh going through massive water chutes and tunnels.

As soon as they come out of one slide, they are on to the next.

Or, they want to go to the pool wearing their goggles and swim, do underwater flips, and underwater handstands.

Next, they are jumping up against the waves in the wave pool! Talk about a core workout - try standing your ground when the next wave comes. It takes a lot of strength to not move!

Sure, they rest a little in the lazy river but then they get bored, they start running through it!

All this time, guess who is chasing after them, supervising, and laughing right there with them?

Me!

Sometimes we go for just a couple of hours. Other days we are at the waterpark for 6 hours!

When we get home, they beg for me to massage their legs!

They are tired and worn out… they sleep soooo good!

So, yes, if you ask me if going to the water park counts as exercise then I will just point you in the direction of our girls.

Ask them… but don’t be surprised if they ask you to stretch their tired achy muscles!
