Splash pad

This summer Mira and I have been spending a lot of time at the local (free!) splash pads.  There seem to be a ton of them in the Austin area; I just never knew they existed until I had Mira.  I'm so lucky we live in Austin with all the cool fun things to do nearby!  Anyway, Mira always has a blast when we go to one of these splash pads.  If you don't know what I mean by "splash pad", they're basically just a flat area with drainage where fountains come on for kids to play in.  Some are little, like the one pictured below, and some are huge.  Here are some photos from one of our recent trips.

Sharing a ball with one of her friends:

 This particular place has a big covered playscape, too.

Mira is so funny.  She likes to run around the outside of the splash pad, squealing with excitement the whole time.  It's only after she "warms up" a little that she'll actually go into the middle where she'll get wet.
 This ball is awesome, in case you couldn't tell with your non-toddler senses.



 Squeeeeeel!  (This is toddler speak for "OMG this is the most fun I've ever had!")

That looks like a blast!

And clearly, the ball is made of win. +1
