Share Your Summer: Fun in the Sun

Happy Monday friends!  Time for another topic in our Share Your Summer series.  Today is all about Fun in the Sun.



One thing is for sure here in Atlanta - we have plenty of heat and plenty of sun.  Temperatures have been near 100 degrees the past few weeks and it is has been a real scorcher.  In order to be outside and have some fun, it most definitely needs to involve water.  Besides spending lots of time at the pool we've been trying to find other ways to stay cool and have fun in the sun.  Last week we met up to visit Centennial Olympic Park and splashed around in the Fountain of Rings.



This park is in the heart of downtown and was originally built as a place for visitors and local to gather during the 1996 Olympic Games.


The Fountain of Rings are one of the biggest attractions there these days. It's the world's largest interactive fountain in the shape of the the Olympic Ring symbol.  Kids and adults alike enjoy running through the fountains as a way to splash, cool off and have fun.


I had taken my girls before, but it was about 5 years ago, so a trip back there was definitely in order.  To say everyone had a blast would be a complete understatement.  They had SO much fun.  Pure joy was radiating from their faces as the ran, giggled and played in the fountains.


The girls ran and played and also made sure the little ones were happy and comfortable in the fountains.


Little Mama danced her way around and Boo-Boo and Cute practiced their ninja moves on the water.


We ate lunch at Googie Burger, which is right in the park and on such a hot day there was nothing to do but to order milkshakes in every flavor!


I did not wear my suit, so I stood around in the sweltering heat and wished I could go running through.  My kids did not want to leave when we had to go, so I promised them we'd come back and next time I'll be sure to wear my swimsuit, too.

Just before leaving we watched the "show" as the kids like to call it.  Set to music, the fountains literally dance before your eyes.  They were amazed, but happy to get to run through the fountains one more time as soon as at the show was over.

We'd love to know how you are having fun in the sun, so be sure to link up below!
