So our great friends, the Parks, invited us over for lunch today. Everything was going just fine until they told me that there was a park within walking distance with old school playground equipment! I should’ve nodded and smiled, but I couldn’t resist….OK, I could’ve. I didn’t. Before I knew it we were on our way.
When I heard they had spring animals, it was all over. I loved these things at the Thompson and Maple street park in Howell, where I grew up. They renovated that park a few years ago and took them all out. :(
Things started out alright. In fact, I think we’d all agree that I conquered the first two animals with relative ease:
Animal # 2 was a pretty simple win too
#3? Well, let’s just say… third time’s not always a charm…
Though my thighs are still burning, I have a few less cool points in my pocket and my pride is a tiny bit damaged, I would do it all again. Thanks to my oldest daughter who was my camera woman and made sure to get my best side in all my shots!
It certainly didn’t end with the spring animals:
Then I decided to take a spin. Bad idea…
I can barely even look at these pictures without getting nauseous.
Then, there was the old metal slide! I swear they took this from my elementary school’s playground.
What? Don’t judge me.
All in all, great time! Thanks to Sara for being our tour guide to and from the park!
