MamaTipTuesday | Local Pool Fun on a Budget

Summer is so not my favorite season. I'm more of a fall kind of girl, but if I have to do summer, I'd rather do it in a pool. All summer long. Just give me a cool drink, some 50 SPF and something nice to lounge on in the cool blue water and I'm a happy girl. I can work via pool side too. Have laptop and will travel. One of the awesome perks of the freelance life.

This past week the whole Fortville Mama crew went and explored Alvin D. Brown Memorial Swimming Pool in Pendleton - just a hop, skip and jump down the road from Fortville. How have we never been here?! The mamas and the kiddos loved it. Not overly crowded. Prices just right. Enclosed baby pool, snack bar, slide, diving boards, grassy picnic area, walk in entry for littles! Kids even met some new friends. It's fabulous!

Plus this mama loves that from 5-7 M-F and 4-6 Saturday and Sunday, you can get in for just $2 per person and under 3 or 62 and over are FREE! Two hours of swimming is plenty for my crew, and I love that it's at the perfect price for our budget!

Oh and it gets even better, peeps. Local businesses are sponsoring Friday Night FREE Swims through the summer. There is one happening this Friday, sponsored by State Farm-Amy Turner! Thanks for being cool local businesses!

And why not make it a well-rounded outing and stop by the famous Jimmie's Dairy Bar in Pendleton before or after. We love the chocolate cones, but they are famous for the tangerine cones. They say they have the best BBQ in Indiana, but the Mamas haven't explored that yet. We'll have to get back to you.
