Dorbrook Park: Our first trip there this Spring
The park has a huge playground, and I mean huge! There are swings, slides, sea saws, a huge sand box area, places to climb, tunnels, monkey bars (which Julia tried some gymnastic moves on) a boat where you can shake the people in it. A bumpy slide, smooth slides, rolling slides, an area for new walkers, an area for toddlers, an area for big kids, it is wonderful...BUT because it's so big and many children show up you must dress your kids brightly and distinctly so they are super easy to spot. And since I have two to keep track of bright oranges, yellow's and blues are a must! Thank goodness for Holly who helped me in this department too!
He says, "Come on!" and waves his little hand in the direction he wants to take you and he now loves to explore new territories and new things...which is great, but kind of scary because he has such a mind of his own, and he will just go explore without remembering where mommy is.
The kids would've played here for hours. I think we actually were in this spot for an hour. They had such a great time. And Holly and I got to catch up and chat, which was super nice!
Their all time favorite part was when you chased them around the trees! Every kid loves those four words, "I'm gonna get you!"
I just loved this picture of Mark and the tree. I don't think he realized how tall trees were until that very day!
My Julia in action. She really is a jumping bean! I love how she has fun wherever she goes, and she just isn't shy about making friends. We made friends with a cute little red haired girl named Julia who was also super outgoing!
Holly we love you!
