Discovery Green

Discovery Green is a 12 acre park in the middle of downtown Houston. We decided to go check it out on Saturday. If you haven't noticed, we hate just sitting around at home when there is so much to see and do around here;) Anyway, there's a lot to do at the park too. Plus, it has a great view of the Houston skyline. They have playgrounds, water activities, booths, a stage for live music, and different events going on every week. It was a nice family oriented atmosphere, although it was sooo HOT out!!

Nothing like a cold popsicle to cool you off! Yummy!

Kenzie enjoyed playing in this. It got so hot that day, so the water really helped cool the kids down!

Playing on the playground.

This was pretty cool. Water shot out of the holes in the ground and the kids can run around and play in it. Perfect for the hot day that it was!!

These are just some of the views of the buildings surrounding the park.

This is a new high rise that is under construction that we could see from the park. You can see where they are putting in the glass walls. That would be a scary job to have to work on building those towers, especially if you are afraid of heights. Yikes, don't look down!

There was a show going on called DockDogs where they would throw a ball or something into the pool and the dogs would jump into the water to go fetch it. It was pretty cool to watch. I have a video but for some reason, videos never work for me when I try to post them??
