Going to the Park is Still Friggin' Cool

Nancy had a great idea to meet at Centennial Park to let the kids play last Saturday. It's a new park that just opened to the public and it is about the coolest place on the planet. Not only can you play on regular old (new) playground equipment, which pretty much rocks...

...if you get hot, you can also cool off in the water playground. 

Park design these days truly rocks. I reminded Nancy of the metal slide at Clarkson Park that used to burn our skin on a regular basis; the slide with no edges so you could fall or get pushed right off the side. 

Kids these days don't know how easy they have it. I think I squealed when I came over the crest of the entrance to see the view of this place. It was all I could do not to bust out my bikini and get in on the action (and yes, I am that mom that makes her kid wear the UBER-coverage sun hat ala 80s Duran Duran videos).

Miss M and H swallowed their weight in water via all the "hose-like" options aching for a tongue. 


Little M2 kept her cool too.

Memories like these warm my heart and make me realize how fun it is to have kids as an excuse to do stuff like this.
