The Playground

We live in the boonies and the closest big retail store we have is Wal-Mart. Actually, there are 2 of them about the same distance -35 miles away - in opposite directions. Sometimes we go to one, sometimes we go to the other. When we go to the one, the girls always ask to go to The Playground that's only a few blocks away. It's actually how they distinguish between the Wal-Marts. "The one with the The Playground or the other one?" The Playground is a park that is a lot of fun and very cool, even for adults. It's a huge wooden structure that's built something like a castle with tunnels, slides, ramps, climbing columns, etc. It is pretty neat.

So imagine our surprise when we went there for the first time this summer and found it gone! Replaced! The girls were so upset, until they got a good look at what took it's place. The new one is just as cool as the old one, if only because it's almost completely different. The only bad thing that I found? All of the slides are very steep. Like so steep that Mikayla couldn't do them by herself and Lilly was even a little scared on them. But all in all, we approve and we'll be back.

The blues and greens in that second picture are gorgeous. Speaking of gorgeous, is it even legal to have three such beautiful girls?

That's quite a playground!
Hope you feel better soon and the smell disapates!

They removed the old wooden structure playgrounds from our area too. I think it had to do with the safety aspects of all those nails and splinters. This one looks like fun!

Looks like a fun playground.

The city council put one in near us a couple of years ago. It has a water feature that the kids can run through. Very popular at this time of the year!
