Field Trip Friday

I have started something new: Field Trip Friday! A couple Fridays out of the month I want to take a little field activities, quilt stores, vacations. (I kinda already started with my memory grove post and canyon post.) It should be alot of fun; places in and around my community. I hope you enjoy it.
Highland Town Center Plaza

This is a great little spot in the town next to where I live. It is only about a 7-10 minutes drive from my house. We had so much fun, the weather was hot and the water was refreshing and cool.

It is free of charge, it has lots of grass, bathrooms and a few restaurants/fast food close by. It was such a great way to spend the afternoon.

Not only is there the circular fountain, but there is a waterfall and a very fun river. The kids had a blast jumping off the rocks and running in the river.

This is a brand new plaza so there is very little shade. I saw lots of families with beach umbrellas. I also brought lots of sun screen and applied often. I am excited to visit all summer. I have been telling all my neighbors about it. Do you have anything like this in your area?

Looks very fun! I'm so glad you shared. My kids love the fountain at the Gateway, but this is a lot closer. :) Plus more stuff!

I've been hearing about this fun park. As soon as it warms up again, I'll haveto take my kiddos.(I found your post on Make and Takes.)

I also found you through Marie over at Makes & Takes. This looks like such a fun way to spend the afternoon. I didn't know about it and you can be sure we'll be heading over there as soon as it warms up again!

Found your post through Make and Takes. We're local, too. We love the Gateway, but will definitely be trying this place out because it's a LOT closer! I can't believe it's FREE, too! Thanx for the info!
