A day at the park

Yesterday I had the day off so H and I spent the day together. I wanted to do something fun, and first thought of going swimming. But with his hearing test just around the corner and the fact that he has just finally gotten rid of the runny nose he's had for two months, I decided not to risk it. Instead we headed over to the park to play, choosing our less frequented (and seemingly less fun) Victoria Park.

Maybe it was the clouds or the fact that it was a week day but we were the only ones there. And the thing about this park is that it has so many toys! I did not know this before I had a kid, but there seem to be toys that just live at the park. They are generally pretty beat up, and if the park is busy you have to fight for them, but otherwise it's pretty awesome. Victoria Park had not one, not two, but THREE ride on toys! And a huge selection of other it's too.

Victoria Park, you have been upgraded from a distant second place to a respectable second place behind my beloved Grandview Park. Hey, let's be serious. Until you get at least one coffee shop on your border for mama it's never going to be a fair fight.

ride on toys!? that's awesome - parks with toys are the best. there's an amazing one in white rock. we'll have to check out this respectable #2 park sometime. :)
