The week before Easter we went to Valley Gardens and made the happy discovery:
|The castle is rebuilt!|
Though it was not completely happy.
|That's why no one is playing on it during a sunny UK day!|
That day the kids played on the bouncy castle, which is a favorite of Jacob's. It reminds him of Jump!Zone and PumpItUp back in Maryland.
|Flintstones and castles don't seem like a proper mix to me|
|Jacob belly-flops the slide|
|Siblings bouncing around the nondescript castle|
We also appreciated the various signs of Spring approaching.

During the week after Easter, we had a fun morning that started at the library. I brought my camera figuring we'd be at Valley Gardens afterward. Jacob and Lucy wanted their picture taken again in the "statue niche" by the stairs inside the library. I obliged.

After collecting some good books we proceeded to the playground. Jacob loved the new castle. It was a bit too challenging for Lucy, who played on other climbers and swings. The new castle hogged up all the picture taking, unfortunately.

|A nice and wobbly bridge|
|A new, crazy climber didn't stop Jacob|
|The castle's backside (so to speak)|
Jacob and Lucy were very excited for a fun day at the resurrected playground. Now if the weather would just get a little warmer (we know better than to hope for a little dryer).
