Just Another Blue-Sky Colorado Summer Day

In our corner of the world, school starts three weeks from today.

The girls plan to spend them swimming, hiking, sleeping in, hanging out with friends, and patronizing this, one of their favorite places in the Denver suburbs.

Behold Civic Green Park:

Some call it a “splashpad.”
Some people call it a “sprayground.”
I call it “heaven on a hot day.”

What you can’t see in this photo: another fountain area, a playground, a small and winding lagoon, and a giant grassy field in the middle of it all. The girls have fun in the water, I get some work done in the shade, and – here’s the best part – it’s all totally free.
