A few weeks back Pop and I were lucky enough to spend a day with our grandsons Trey and Peter. Our city park's amusement section had been closed for two years for renovations. The Carousel is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1911 and had a beautiful renovation.
The miniature train is one third size replica of a locomotive, there are kiddie boats which Pop and I had to pass on enjoying. The boys wanted us join them but we had to explain what sinking the boat is. The playground was revamped and made for kids of all ages. There are paddle boats, the last time I was on them was when I was doing anything and everything I could think of to encourage Elise to be born. I'm afraid the poor young man that was running the boats may have retired from his job after that day.
Here are some pictures of our fun...sadly once again I forgot to bring my camera so other than the inside shot of the carousel and the large shot of the train, these are what I managed to snap from my phone. Pop was riding in the stationary swan with the boys. I was on the horse with the golden mane that goes up and down. I love, love, love riding on a carousel.
Happy Birthday to our son Steve, Jr...Trey and Peter's Dad. He's such a great dad and son. I went into labor with this treasure of a child on Mother's Day...how appropriate of a gift?
Happy Mother's Day from the American Calendar to all my Mom friends, whatever your calendar says.
