We love to camp and hike in the summer. Ethan loves the Sprayground and hanging out inside museums where it's cool. Oh, we also have a tradition of eating fruit, cheeses, bread and salami (with wine for mom and dad) while watching a movie on hot nights.
Where's the sprayground? I'm a ABQ newbie and on the lookout for fun things and the sprayground sounds like it's our speed. Also, my boys and I went to the rattlesnake museum and had the best time. It's not big but what it lacks in size it makes up for in intimacy. The guy running the place is pretty nice too. We'll definitely be going back.
Come! Let us dance like children of the night! Co-op member Co-op Member!!!

Personally I won't set foot in the rattlesnake museum, but my hubby and kids loooove it! For those of you who stay up late enough, Craig Ferguson says it is the best museum in the US. The guy who owns the place recognizes AL and kiddos when they come in cuz they have been there so many times.
My kiddos love to run the hose and make ponds in the sandbox, yes, I know, not water economy friendly, but it sure cools them off. We also take evening walks as the sun is setting, especially to DQ to get a treat!
We need to get into a habit of going somewhere to swim.

We are finding some sweet little gems, The national monuments and Museum of Art are free on sundays for residents, we adore Lincoln its a drive , but let the boys loose in Billy the kids old stomping grounds and they are set!~ White sands is awesome, bring sleds and plan to spend the day.
We love the manzano mesa spray park off of elizabeth street. It's 13 bucks to join the community center and then .50 cents per child each visit, and there is also a park there to play at as well. We are military so we are pretty lucky to also get to enjoy a really nice covered park here and the swimming pools. Also, the museums are great, and the little water spray area at ABQ up town. (haven't been there but have seen it).....going to the little play area at the cottonwood mall is a nice change...and we also went to see the winnie the pooh movie a few weeks ago, precious
