The Park

Today I took the kids to a local park.  It's located by Jude's school, which is a bit of a drive, so we had never been there before.

First we decided to feed the ducks.  



Jude saw this grill and didn't know what it was.  He said, "Mama, is that a special chair?"



I made a loaf of bread this week and flopped it.  I'm still not exactly sure where I went wrong, as I've made this bread recipe several times before with great results. Anyway, we decided it would make great duck food.  The ducks weren't that hungry, so when we were done feeding them, I left the loaf on a picnic table in case another mother/child wanted to feed the ducks and forgot to bring bread.  However, it was quickly feasted upon by the birds.  We got a kick out of this sight!




The kids had a great time playing on the playground equipment.  They loved riding this little horse.





I was pushing Indi on the swing and she kept requesting to go faster and faster.  It got a little too fast for her and she exclaimed, "I afraid... afraid!  I want to go to the baby slide."  So here she is on the baby slide.



The kids loved climbing and "riding" this turtle.



Next we explored this beautiful building.  I loved the architecture.







The winters here are just perfect.. a welcome reprieve from the summer's heat!
