One thing I don't remember from my childhood days are Splash Pads. There are plenty of them around nowadays and goodness are they ever fun! Since our neighborhood doesn't have a pool, this is a great way for my kids to have fun in the water and cool off during the hot days.
Last week, we met up with some friends at a local, newly renovated splashpad right off of our downtown area. It doesn't take much to make the kids happy - just a big circle of cement with multiple fountains of water coming out at different places. A good time was had by all. Add lunch to the mix after they've worn themselves out in the water and the day is complete!
Hitting it straight on!
The brave ones went right to the center and sat down.
Taking a break and warming up in the sun.
A perfect bench for 5 little friends.
Can't wait to do it all again! Until next time....
