Riverbank State Park Adventure

What fun we had today! After discovering Riverbank State Park, just a few blocks away, we set off to explore so we can add it to our hang out spots. I don't know why I didn't know the park was there. We've been in that area many times. *shrug*

After enjoying a short walk across the bridge we came to the first section. Since I haven't been there before...or at least don't remember...I quickly found a map. As I'm trying to figure out the maps, Daniel decided he wanted to help me figure things pointing out where we are on the map. LOL

The park is actually very large with lots of different area...Olympic-size pool, tennis court, track and field, and so much more. Too much for a one day adventures so we settled on just visiting the playground. On the way we made many stops so that Daniel could climb stairs, touch the grass, make friends with a a lil boy who had a scooter, flirt with that same lil boys mom and in general run around. This kid!

After finally reaching the playground, it seems more for older kids but we tested it out anyway. Of course Daniel went straight to the slides. At first, I was a little nervous since it's a bit longer then the toddler slides we're use to. But after a few trips and a happy Daniel I relaxed. I even took a turn sliding down...which caused Daniel to laugh so much he nearly feel over.

From there we walked back to the benches so we could watch the sun set. Of course we made more stops to explore and touch things. Finally we made it to the sitting area. As I looked at Daniel sitting nicely on a bench, I decided to take a photo of him. Of course then I needed to take a mom and son photo also. I gotta keep track of these special moments!
