|The wide shot of the playground|
The playground slopes down a bit toward the back. The designers took good advantage of this fact to have a network of rope bridges lead back to some nice climbing down equipment, like a cargo net, a slide, and a fireman pole.

The children enjoyed the various swings. Lucy stuck to the more traditional swing set. She had all the adults push her on the swing, though I think Daddy was the favorite because I push her the most. I asked her if she was in outer space and she readily agreed. She tried to get Mommy to push her so high that she'd be in outer space, with mixed results.

Jacob favored the less traditional swing.
Later, he did try out the more traditional swing, BUT he did fly as high as he could.
|Mommy, look at me going into outer space!|

Jacob also convinced his aunties to try out the obstacle course on the playground. He had already practiced several times and had a head start, so here he is showing them how it's done.
|A long way to go|
The playground is quite fun and made the visit even better for us. Our next blog will go through the extensive gardens.
