Two summers ago I took the kids to Cowabunga Bay. And yes, you totally know which one I'm talking about even if you don't recognize the name. It's that eye-catching, kids-never-miss-it water park off I-15 in Draper.
You know, the one your child (or children) point out EVERY TIME you drive past it.
I can't be the only one who hears...
"Mom! I wanna go to Cowabunga Bay! When are we going to Cowabunga Bay? Can we go to Cowabunga Bay NOW?!?"
...when the kids see it from their car windows. In the middle of December.
Well guess what? I get to be the Best. Mom. Ever. Monday night when I take the family to the oft-mentioned water park for the Cowabunga Bay Summer Preview Party.
A mere $6.99 per person (promo code below) and the park only 1/4 full? We are so totally there!
I imagine I'll see faces like the ones in this photo (taken during our last visit) because it will be one of the best family nights ever:
You too can have shiny, happy little people—and a great way to get out of planning a lesson, activity and treat—if you buy your tickets now (because space is limited) for one of two Cowabunga Bay Summer Preview Parties.
Or buy tickets for both and be Mom of the Year!
The Summer Preview Parties are a pre-paid, limited-space event. Once the limit is reached for each night, online ticket sales will close.
Tickets will go faster than a teenager on the Mondo slide. Not kidding.
Here are the details and purchasing info complete with promo code:

To purchase tickets CLICK HERE, then click "enter promo code" and enter emihill.
Remember...Cowabunga Bay is only selling enough tickets to fill the park 1/4 full!
That's like having your own private water park party complete with fewer people and shorter lines!
The weather forecast for Monday is showing a high of nearly 90 degrees—perfect weather for water sliding, splash zoning and lazy rivering. George and Madison totally have that lazy river thing down...
If you haven't been to Cowabunga Bay before, these preview parties are a great way to give the water park a test drive slide. And if this is a return visit, you'll want to check out the new Cowabunga Kids Cove— an area with a separate place for little ones complete with slides and water play structures. They've also added more grass areas for relaxing and sunbathing.
Or downing a huge jug of lemonade.
Have you purchased your tickets yet? No? Well, get on it before they sell out! If you come, I'll have someone to chat with while Nathan babysits plays with George and Livi.
And now for the GIVEAWAY!
Cowabunga Bay is giving away two (2) family packs of five (5) tickets each for the 2012 summer season!

Disclosure: A big thank you to Cowabunga Bay for providing the tickets for the giveaway. They're also letting us hit up Monday's Summer Preview Party and giving us a few extra tickets for a return visit. I'll be investing in a few of those Cowabunga Bay jugs because I'm a sucker for cheap refills!
