Re: [IPp] water park



We just spend a whole day at Michigan Adventure Water Park last weekend with 
my 9 year old Animas pumper and didnt have any problems...we took off his 
pump the entire day except for lunch and kept it in a shaded locker the rest 
of the time....with all the excercise, he was good with his blood sugar all 
day.  I also had called the first aid station ahead of time and asked if we 
could keep his pump there and they said it would be fine.  In the long run, 
we just figured it would be easier to lock it up.

Have fun!
