A trip to the park


At the playgroup gathering last week, one of the moms there told me about a park that wasn't too far from our place; she couldn't remember the name of it, but told me to be on the look out for a castle-like structure not too far from the road.  All I had to hear was "castle" and Sammy and I were soon on a mission to find the place.  We drove around for a bit and then we saw it--a huge playground complete with shade structures (in El Paso, this a definite must have) off of Doniphan Avenue. 


White Spur Park, as I learned it was called, had everything I could ever dream of and more--a tot lot with climbing structures and swings just the right size for Sammy, musical instruments built into the climbing structures for the kids to play, water spritzers for when your little one needed a bit of a refreshing break and nice shady benches where an overheated mom like myself could sit and relax.  Needless to say, Sammy and I had a blast.


Sammy had a great time climbing everywhere (albeit slowly) and even went down the slide by himself...after some coaxing from me, but still--I'll take what I can get.


Sammy was very adventurous in taking on the climbing structures on his own, but he was a bit wary of the tunnels--I tried and tried to get him to go through, but he wouldn't budge.  Maybe next time--and with a park this awesome, rest assured that there will definitely be a next time!

That last shot looks not like Sammy is refusing to go through the tunnel, but rather that Sammy is pausing to charge up his super ray beam.

What a great park! We have a similar one near our house, although not as big. And there's not as much shade, although in a few years the little trees around it will give some good shade to the tot lot. Bless the folks that thought to have a toddler playground apart from the big kids, and thought to enclose it with only one avenue for escape.
