New Playground

I took the kids to a playground in Hopkins which is right around the corner from a movie theatre. I was thinking about taking them to see How to Train Your Dragon afterward (again), but after plenty of time at the park, it was well past the beginning of the movie.A few nice days here. High was only about 70 degrees, but it was bright and sunny. The “rubber asphalt” got pretty hot, but the kids insist on taking their shoes off while at parks. After a month of “Sure, go ahead.”, they still think that it is a treat if I let them. Anyhow, instead of putting their sandals on, the kids instead played inside the slide using it as their clubhouse.

They were slow to warm to the park, but after awhile they had a blast. Much larger than the play areas of parks where we live, although the only bathroom was in a “warming house” with no lights. There were skylights, but only for the main room, so we had to pee with the bathroom doors open.
