I felt kind of petty complaining about the lack of sun when we got to the park yesterday...after all, it's barely April. Being able to swim outdoors this early is clearly a bonus. By the afternoon, the clouds had cleared, and the river was afloat with tubers--I mean toobers. Getting there early ensured a parking spot at the always crowded Hinman Island. The tube chute was a blast, and this early in the season FREE! Sophie rode it a dozen times. Our $9.99 tubes from Target were money well spent.
