And We Visit Those Steps Again

I have posted about our town's water steps before, but I finally remembered to take my camera, and boy, is it a picturesque spot! Everywhere I turned my camera, there was a beautiful shot just waiting.
This trip to the steps was a little different because right as we were arriving so was a huge group of campers. They were older elementary students and a group of them made quite a bit of noise and commotion. Our kids were pulled away from the chaos by the beauty of the big fountains and the boats on the river. Then from there they headed to some grassy steps that make up a walkway beside the river. It was hot, but quiet by the river, and we moms were grateful to follow our kiddos wherever they led us.
They, of course led us back to the water steps eventually. I love our town! 
p.s. Did I mention that all this fun was free? Since we moms packed a lunch (which we ate by more water in front of the aquarium) our whole outing cost us zilcho, nada, nothing. This is a sweet deal, if you ask me! Again, I say, I love our town!

  6. You love your town but you tease us by not telling where it is! I poked around your blog but couldn't discover where you are.

  7. Those are beautiful steps. I don't have anything near that lovely to do around my town - especially for free! Where I live, if you want to do something for entertainment you're gonna fork out some money doing it. That's why I don't really like living in the city.

  11. I love this! Earlier this summer, we did a free kayaking trip with the Outdoor____ for our city, and kayaked near there, and my sister and I kayaked right under the fountains!!! Man the force of those things is a lot harder than you'd expect, but it was so fun!! :)
