Green Hour- Park Exploration
As I expected we have been at our new park every day this past week. We've gotten to know a lot of the workers there from Michael and Paul, two very nice groundskeepers, to Christine, Janelle and Marilyn, the fabulous coffee shop staff and Rosemary, the information desk lady who turns out to be the mother of a friend of mine from high-school. They've come to expect us. Everyday the girls report to Rosemary and tell them whether they've been good or not and everyday we make a game of searching for Michael to say hello. Even if it just means waving to him from outside the maintenance shed.
We're there in rain
We've brought old friends (I'm still jealous of Julian's grandma-made schnitzel sandwich)
And made new ones
And explored both inside
And it's only been a week! We've met a lady and her parrot, stopped and listened to musicians playing on the Great Lawn, chatted with neighbors over coffee and embroidery on the patio and seen all kinds of animals from turtles to bats. I can already tell that this park is going to be the source of many fond memories for my kids.
