Families spend last days of summer together

Posted: Updated:

This is the last weekend for many families before the kids head back to school.
Many families headed out to Lost Island Waterpark to pack in one last day of fun.

Water splashing, kids laughing were just a few of the signs of summer that will soon be gone.
With time running out to fit in all that summer fun, many are focused on spending time together.

"Its our last weekend with the kids, we want to have a nice week before school starts," said Jessica Buckley. "We are trying to get everything in last minute. So they can have a last hurrah."
For Buckley, it was all about making memories.
"Just seeing them smile. Its every moms favorite thing to do, is see their kids smile and have them enjoy," said Buckley.

It was a breezy, overcast day, Saturday, but that didn't stop the folks at the waterpark from having fun.

"This weather is nothing. This place is a blast. We're going to have a great time and try to hit as many slides as we can," said Lauren Schmitt.

 Not having fun wasn't an option for Schmitt's son, Hunter, and his best friend, Brody.
"I'm gong to miss seeing my friends," said Brody. "He is moving away."
 This weekend is the last time Brody and Hunter are going to see each other for a long time.
 So for them, every moment this weekend counts.
 "I think they are really going to miss each other," said Schmitt.

 Spending time with family and friends was a sediment that was echoed by many today.

 If you haven't soaked up enough of summer yet, Lost Island will be open through August 30th.
