Then again it's Michigan weather so we'll all have to wait and see.

The forecast says sunny and maybe on Monday we might tip the scales near 70 or maybe a tad bit warmer.

It's a holiday weekend. And if you're not hitting the highway, you should be hitting the beach or pool.

Or any excuse the get the kids out of your house.

Might we suggest the beach or the splash pad at Hawk Island?

The Splash Pad is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day 9:00am to 8:00pm weather permitting and is free of charge.

The Splash Pad at Hawk Island is a zero depth water park with fifteen features to spray, splash, and dump a blast of refreshing cool water! The Splash Pad is located adjacent to the beach house, offers lounge chairs and chaise lounges for adults to relax while the kids enjoy themselves.  (Ingham County Parks)

You don't have to spend big bucks or travel far for family fun in the water. Make waves and make a splash right here in your own back yard...so to speak.

And remember safety first no matter what.
