Frolicking in Fountains
In Portland, OR we have a plethora of beautiful fountains, and get this-it's okay to play in them. As a kid I have tons of found memories of my three siblings and I swimming and splashing in city fountains. It is a great way to beat the heat and it is completely free!!! This week has been pretty sweltering (for us anyway) and I wanted to have the boys play in the water before the weather starts to change. There is a fairly new waterfront fountain on Ankeny that has interactive sprays. It appealed to me especially because at times the sprays are fairly low so "B" could get some water play in too. It turned out to be a wonderful evening. I just hope my kids have memories of days like this, just as I do from my childhood.
