In order not to have a long drive back home, we found a playground near the airport. It's called Stamford Park in the town of Altrincham. We had a little trouble getting there but when we found it, we were delighted.
Jacob's favorite part was the various climbers that were just challenging enough to require a little help from me. Lucy naturally picked the furthest swing from the climbers so I went back and forth between them.

The other highly popular item was the slide. This slide was no ordinary piece of playground equipment. It went into the ground and through a wall!

A tot playground was also nearby but Jacob never made it that far. Maybe next time!
|It did have the furthest swings, so Lucy made it|
The drive back was beastly hot, in the mid-70s Fahrenheit! We're not used to such hardships in the mid-morning. especially in an un-air-conditioned car. Every time I'd roll down the windows Jacob and Lucy would try to talk to me from the back seat and I couldn't hear them. So the windows kept going down and up. We made it home okay and had a tasty lunch before settling in for naps.
Before napping, Jacob made me promise that we'd go back to that playground again. So there may be a future post about it!
