Sunny Days

I often brag on how fortunate we are to live in such a great area.  We are within driving range of several great museums, parks, the beach and Washington D.C.  Spring is the perfect time to take a little road trip and enjoy the great outdoors. 

We’ve heard about a great multi-sensory playground near by, so I decided to take advantage of the beautiful April weather and go for a drive.  There were four (yes 4) school bus loads of kids at the playground while we were there.  Yet with all those kids it still wasn’t over crowded, but it was busy!

Olivia, being the horse lover, was enthralled with this sculpture - chalkboard combination.

Below is the back side of the above photo, with the horse being to the right where the man and little boy are standing.

The hammock was a hot commodity.  Kids stood in line for the longest time waiting to hop in and rest….but I noticed they all hopped out pretty quickly.  I guess rest is over rated at this age.

This corkscrew sliding gizmo was a pretty busy area as well.  Lindsey LOVED it.  Olivia, not so much.

Once we had our fill of the playground (several hours later), we wandered over to the JMU Arboretum.   It was so quiet and peaceful!  LOVED it!

The kids’ favorite thing was the turtles.   We counted over 30, but you know they all look alike after a while, so we may have been off count by a bit.

I of course loved the flowers!  I especially loved how this photo of the tulips turned out.

There’s nothing more enjoyable than getting out and enjoying God’s creation with your children!
