Summer is here!

Um, how is it almost Memorial Day weekend, y’all? 2013 is really flying by, and I can’t believe its time for swimming, grilling and outdoor fun again. No complaints here!

There are a ton of fun, summery things to do with the family in the ATX, but last weekend we found a new favorite: the Liz Carpenter Fountain at Butler Park. C couldn’t get enough of the splash pad fun, and I know we’ll be regulars for the next few months.

It took little lady a bit of exploring before she was ready to let loose amongst the fountain streams, but once she figured out that it is fun to run around in the cool water on a hot day, she was in love!

C and her sweet pal were beyond precious playing in the water together. They loved feeling the water on their hands and waiting for another stream to pop up.

And lesson learned for mom — when your toddler is playing in a fountain, you are playing in a fountain, too! Next time I’ll have to whip out the maternity swimsuit (yikes), or wear something that will dry a little faster than denim shorts. I’m glad I avoided white that day!

What are your favorite spots for fun in the sun in Austin, or your city? Tell me all about it in the comments.
