Park Fun Day

The Park celebrated the first official weekend of summer with children’s games, surrey rides, town ball, and interactive demonstrations this past Saturday.

We jumped on the bandwagon, or surrey (haha), to celebrate. I took the Buckaroo's along with their good friend Princess Ri to play games of yesteryear.




We began with a three-legged race. They are all smiles here, but...



after the first two steps, crash! It is harder than it looks. Well, that is not really what Littlest Buckaroo is saying as he stares at them on the ground. But, he does have his daddy leading the way for him. After a little bit of fretting, they were up and going again, slowly, but going.


More fun games. They went through them pretty quick, I guess they are used to more "modern" games. The park historian pulled out the big guns and they played..

pick-up sticks. Princess Ri got bored so we went and worked on her modeling career.



Then there was the watermelon, or marshmelons as the kids were calling them. I have no idea why, but sometimes you just have to go with it.


Nikki brought Hot Rod Car to meet up with us after their trip into town and he enjoyed his marshmelon too (he had just consumed a blue sucker prior to this, that is why his finger and mouth are blue).

We had a great day at the park, take time this summer to enjoy the parks in your area, they are a treasure.
