What is it with kids and water? They want to be in it, they want to be near it, they want to throw things in it, they really just want to get WET!
We recently went to the science museum in Balboa Park and we could hear the fountain before we could see it. Once we rounded the corner and the kids got a glimpse of the fountain they were off like a shot! They ran up and started jumping around the edge, the mist spraying on them as they danced.
