A Super Splash Pad for Four Florida kids

My Great Outdoors

Family: Amanda, Marcos, Gavin (10), Dylan (8), Emily (4) and Melia (1)
Location: Winter Springs, Florida

My husband Marcos made a back yard splash pad for our four children. It is made out of beautiful (non slippery) Travertine tiles…

We wanted something that looked mature, but very child friendly, and most of all FUN! It is a safer alternative to a pool. It helps our whole family cool off in this hot Florida sun!

My husband, Marcos, is an artist. He does modern art, color on stainless steel paintings/sculptures. He is always building creative things for the kids — having an amazing artist for a Dad has its benefits!

Thanks Amanda, and great work Marcos! When can we visit??
