i think i've mentioned my love for our city before.
but, may i reiterate for a moment?
i love our city!
yesterday my sister and i took our four kids downtown for the afternoon. generally, four kids in the city would not be relaxing. but we went to the lawn of the downtown library where there is a beautiful water-path. it's perfect for kids of all ages.  
there is a lush lawn, benches, great views of downtown, and a starbucks in sight. it's never more than a few inches deep so even babies can sit and splash.
the kids were happy, the moms were happy; it was a great day.
