The Gateway Fountain
If you look really close you can seen Brandon and his cousin Dalton getting pummeled by the water in the lower left-hand corner of this picture. I love the Gateway! And I love this fountain. It's constantly bubbling and burbling and it's lots of fun to look at or dodge your way through to see if you can make it to the other side without getting wet. But every half hour it gears up for a big, choreographed show with music and all...and wow! It gives me chills every time. And yes, you're probably thinking that if the little fountain at the Gateway can give me the chills then I've probably never been to see the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. And you'd be right. I'd love to see those Bellagio fountains someday. But you can't run through the fountains at the Bellagio. And they don't play music from the olympics, I'm guessing. (I'm a big olympics fan.) So I'm more than happy to sit in front of the Gateway fountain, eating a bowl of Ben and Jerry's icecream, letting the mist from the fountain blow over me, and watching the kids run around with huge smiles on their faces. Can't get much better than that.
