We have been hearing great things about the new Maggie Daley Park downtown. Today was the day we decided to check it out, despite the intense heat wave that also came to town. It is pretty much amazing. The kids loved it. It was a little overwhelming for me, as it's quite spread out, split into several sections and it was super busy and hoooooot but we had a really great time. Shane kept saying "this is AWESOME!" and there was no whining, despite some uncomfortable heat.
We just got there and we were already sweating and squinting!
Just a little bit sunny!
The little splash pads were a lifesaver!
Break for lunch!
After lunch, instead of heading back to the park, we decided to check out Crown Fountains (the face fountains) and the "Bean". The kids had an absolute BLAST getting soaked in the fountains and it was a perfect way to cool down on the hottest day of the summer (so far?!). I had little butterflies in my stomach as I watched them having so much fun....such joy and excitement.
We finished up the day with some lemon ices and were very excited for the a/c in the car! Our day was exhausting, but it was so much fun. Can't wait for our next adventure!
