Endless Summer

I have a couple more posts to share about fun things we did this summer, but right now I want to share about what we did last weekend.  Even though “summer” is over, school is back in session, football is on TV and people across the world are gearing up for fall and the cooler weather, we live in a city that has pretty much an endless summer.  It is going to be a while before we can dust off our sweaters, boots and scarves, if we even get to do it at all.  I don’t think I wore a single sweater last fall/winter, it was so warm! Anyway, we had an exceptionally hot weekend and my friend Julia asked if we wanted to join her and her daughter at the new water park at the County Administration building downtown.  It just opened several months ago and I’ve been wanting to go check it out, so we did!

We got there about 30 minutes before they turned on the fountains, so we played in the playground for a while.

They were running…

Splashing and skipping…

And occasionally, they would glance at my camera when they zoomed by…

And whenever I tried to get both of them in the same picture, it kept ending up like this…both of them running in opposite directions

IMG_9881edSo we sat them down to get the picture we wanted…Love these cute faces 🙂
