Dozens of parents and children hit up the Peabody Splash Sark at Riverfront Park in downtown Little Rock.
The young ones say they were tired of staying indoors watching television and reading, they wanted to have some "real" summer fun.
"Yesterday it was pouring so we couldn't go swim yesterday in the pool."
"My yard is flooded. It's muddy. They can't jump on the trampoline without having mud up to their knees.
In case you're wondering Splash Park is open Monday through Saturdays and admission is free, you can't beat that!
