It’s time to start planning for warm-weather fun. The SOAKya Water Park and Lake Winnie Amusement Park in Rossville, Ga., open several weeks before the official start of summer: the amusement park on May 5 and the water park on May 28.

I really enjoyed Coke Float Cove. It is kind of like a roped monkeybar obstacle course with floating soda caps. It is a fun challenge. Once I competed against my sister to see who could get to the other side first. I don’t mean to brag, but I won.

To be fair, it was a very close race.
