|One of the playgrounds at Cheesequake.|
Cheesequake Park is about 5 minutes from our home...I can't believe we've waited 2 1/2 years to take the kids here!
Our Central Jersey Playdate group met there on Monday...There were four moms and six children and honestly I've never seen both my kids so engaged and SO happy! Not only did Grandma come to help, but the kids were right around Julia and Mark's age (Marian's kids go to church with us, so Julia loved hanging out with Melanee and Brodee)
We hung out at the playground to get warmed up (we met at 10:30 a.m.) and then we headed to the lake! It was an empty day, which also made it nice because we didn't have tons of people around us. I did run into my friend Ellen who used to teach third grade at Timothy with me. She teaches Kindergarten now. She had two girls with her and they joined the fun too.
|Julia loved being on the swings.|
Julia and Mark liked the park so much because it was a big safe area with so much endless things to do and see. There were swings, monkey bars, slides, benches, open fields, tons of trees, friends, her Grandma, and water to swim in close by!
|Mark at the park...that would be a great title for a book.|
|Mark loves his new walking freedom!|
|Melanee and Julia were too cute holding hands on the way to the Lake!|
|Marian, the umbrellas were great...Thank you for bringing them!|
|We brought buckets to play with! We collected rocks and did lots of splashing!|
|It was great to have lots of moms to help.|
|So much fun!|
