Beating the heat with a water fountain

We were strolling through the downtown area of Roanoke, VA and it had gotten a little hot due to the midday sun. There is an ampitheater there with water jets shooting up randomly and we were able to kill two birds with one stone; cool down and have fun! Pretty soon a bunch of children had joined in (with and without parental permission) to enjoy the free water works!
