Gammy's Park

Mom was driving around checking out neighborhoods, as mom is apt to do, when she spotted a cute little park right off downtown Lisle. The next morning we decided to take the kids (all 3 - Ben, Olivia, and Dee; 4 if you count Mike) and check it out. It did not disappoint.

Lots of climbing for this little guy.

No park is complete without slides.

Meanwhile Gammy kept Olivia out of the sun and happy.

The park also had a splash park that started up while we were there. Only mommy failed to bring a swimsuit for Ben. I did have a spare pair of undies/jeans in case of an accident, so I told him to take off his shirt and go ahead. I thought he'd love it, but he was self-conscious of being the only kid without a shirt on. It really surprised me, but I didn't want to traumatize the poor kid, so I put his shirt back on him but he still preferred just to watch the action.

Meanwhile Dee spotted a squirrel and gave Gammy a run for her money!

Olivia spent a good part of the park visit trying to kick the sun blocker by her feet. Check out that determined little face.

After the park, we checked out downtown Lisle and popped into this little sweets shop for milkshakes. Delicious!

Ben now refers to this park as "Gammy's park." We'll have to visit again soon -- with a bathing suit for Ben next time.

  1. I like the milkshakes best! No wonder they were both smiling!
