It is time, my friends, to finally show you our new park.

PICT0049 edited small

Don’t worry–it’s not far!  Only one house away from our house.

And if anyone tries to mess with us, Daddy and I have our sticks.

So let’s go see what’s happened to our park (waaaay back at the beginning of 2009, when I was only 22 months old).

My dear Daddy just came home from work and joined us in our visit.

Daddy takes me to our park a lot and I love it.  (Especially now that it gets dark so early and we get to take a flashlight with us!!!)

Holy smokes alive–would you look at that!

With our old buck-a-bout removed, and a new bridge installed (by using a wonderful ‘Nona!’), and the gravel pushed to the sides, our neighborhood was prepared for a guided installation of new playground toys!!

Oh my goodness.

*A moment of silence is observed*

PICT0074 edited big

This is going to be great!

PICT0078 edited small

We have slides now!

PICT0232 edited big

That I can go down with my Daddy!

PICT0235 edited small

*Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!*

PICT0241 edited small

And then go back to do it again…..

PICT0242 edited small

….. With a little help!

PICT0083 edited small

Hee, hee, hee!  I love this!

PICT0088 edited small

No way!  We have a new turtle!

PICT0087 edited big

And just think–in a few short months, I’ll be able to climb on and off this thing all by myself.

PICT0147 edited small

Oh good!  We still have our old digger.

PICT0153 edited small

It just wouldn’t be the same without our old digger.

PICT0155 edited small

Oh good!  We still have puddles, too!

PICT0159 edited small

Ha!  It wouldn’t be home around here without puddles. :)

Or a tennis net.

PICT0180 edited small

[Oh my heart, how little he looks and how fast he’s grown!]

Look at this, guys!  I’m back at the playground again and trying out our new swing set!

PICT0209 edited small

*A moment of silence is observed as Mommy contemplates the cuteness of her used-to-be-one-year-old son and his adorable legs*

*A second moment of silence is interrupted by Daddy who says, “We need to take a picture of him just like that every year from now on.”*

*A third moment of silence is interrupted by Mommy who says, “I completely agree.”*

PICT0215 edited small

Ha!  Daddy’s using the swing!!

PICT0226 edited small

That’s crazy!!

PICT0266 edited small

“Hm?  Whatchya talkin’ ’bout, Willis?”

PICT0267 edited small

Boy, oh boy!  That was so fun.  I love our new park and I’m so glad we have it so close.  Thank you to all those who worked so hard to get it for me and all the other children in our neighborhood–we are so grateful!

Now it’s back to home with our sticks.

PICT0294 edited small

But you know what? The fun doesn’t end there!

PICT0006 edited small

Later on, they repainted the old dinosaur and then…..

PICT0007 edited small

….. They built me a train track to the new bridge!!!!

PICT0008 edited small

So now I can ride Thomas straight from our garage to the park without getting stuck on any grass!!!

Holy smokes. The only thing that could possibly make this any better is if, say, I had two cheeks full of potty-training jelly bellies.

Yes little boys need puddles to jump in.
