Playground Fun

We have a brand new park that has opened up close to us. It's fantastic. There are lots of biking and walking trails, picnic facilities and it's got a great playground. There is an area for little kids and an area for "big" kids. There are plans to expand it too with an Aquatic Center with an outdoor pool, volleyball and tennis courts, lacrosse and soccer fields, skate parks, dog parks and more. It is still being developed, but the first phase is opened.

We went several times over the Christmas break. The boys had lots of fun.

Cool park!

Sam loved the train you see in the background (of course), and honestly spent most time just around the playground like only a 3 year old can do!

Yay Me!

He's starting to become quite a climber -- which puts my heart in my throat most of the time!

Made it to the top!

Of course, Josh likes to climb too!

Too cool for school...

Is that a "Future Heartbreaker" or what?

And he's off!

He was so proud of himself for making it all the way across the monkey bars. He kept practicing until he got it!

Of course any new park has some growing pains. And we found a MAJOR problem with this park over the weekend. We tried to go twice -- once on Sunday and once on Monday -- and it was so crowded there was no parking available. It's also got no covered seating which could become a problem later in the year. But the parking issue is quite annoying right now. I know part of the reason was because it is a new playground and also because it was near 70 degrees on the last day of Winter Break. I hope once school starts we'll be able to re-visit this playground again!

Luckily, our town has lots of great playgrounds so we went to another local park that usually has lots of kids.

The other park is smaller, but the boys still had fun on the slide. Check out Sam's hair!

Look at his hair!!!!


  1. Love the heartbreaker pic:)

    We don't have any kind of parks like this around our area, possibly because they can only really be used maye 7 or 8 months out of the year. I wish we did; how awesome this place looks. The smaller park doesn't look to shabby, either.

  2. Wow! That park rocks! No wonder it's so packed. And man, gotta love the climbing/heart attack inducing stage. As long as it's not followed by the leaping off of tall objects phase, you'll be fine. BTW, the static cling head is kind of a good look on Sam. :)

  3. Wow, that looks so cool. I wish we had a park like that nearby!

  4. I LOVE his hair!!! That's a great one! You are such a talented photographer! Man, I can see some really cool croppin pages in these! This park looks awesome!

  5. I love the static hair look! I wish they'd had parks like that when I was a kid!

  6. Oh, so jealous of the nice weather! Man! Playing in the park would be so nice after all these dreary months!

    The pics of the boys are fantastic! LOVE the staticy hair!

  7. Oh I love playgrounds! The park by my house has 5 playgrounds (!) and my niece and nephews ad I try to hit all 5 in one day sometimes, but so far we have never met that feat.

  8. That looks like a great park. I wish we had great walking/biking trails in northern Kentucky. I have to drive 30 - 40 mins to get to the nearest bike trails.

    I guess a girl can dream (and envy...)

  9. I'm so glad they had a wonderful time!!
