The Motherland

Of parks, that is. And we found it.

I had heard through the grapevine about this park with an incredible tower and HUGE slides. It sounded SO much fun and a like a much needed change of scenery for my kids. So we made the short trek to test it out. I'm still in awe how awesome it was. It puts all other parks in town to shame!! And somebody's been keeping it a secret!!!

I couldn't back up enough to capture the awesomeness of this park.

It had a merry-go-round. You don't see those too much anymore.

But the slides. Oh the slides. I mean, I was really tempted to try them out. But the sign said the cutoff age was 12. Oh well. But we sure sent the kids up to test them. Even Lillian made it down the biggest slide once! Crazy girl.

Here she is coming out the second highest slide. Yes, second highest. There is one that starts even higher than you see in the picture. (You can see it in the first pic) That one, she came out headfirst and upside down. And it didn't phase her a bit. She ran right back up the tower!!! It did make me a bit nervous, but Olivia was right there with her the whole time.

It was definitely more of an older kids park, even though it had a great 'baby' area. We will definitely be going back. And if you live in town, and want to know where it is, shoot me an email and I'll give the "secret" directions. I'm telling you, the people in this town are doing a great job of keeping it under wraps!
