Weekend fun at the park.

What do you do at a brand new park when no one is there? You have a good time without having to worry about being trampled by little kiddos. That is just what we did with Rylan this last weekend.
As if Rylan's date with Pooh Bear and gang wasn't enough, we took him to a neighborhood park that recently opened up. To our amazement, there was not a single person there in the middle of the day. The day was perfect with the skies a bit overcast. A great change from the scorching Arizona summer days.
Rylan took full advantage of the park and we escorted him around. Previously dead asleep, he awoke to the challenge when he saw all of the new things to climb over and through. Despite the picture above, he did not have a great time on the slides. When he reached the bottom, he was more shocked than anything. When my wife took him down it a few times, he began to get worried and cried.
The park had a few new toys that I was unfamiliar with including a small piano. It even included music to read and then to try and perform. This kept me and my wife entertained for a good 5 minutes. Who would have known. Rylan certainly seemed to enjoy it as well but my wife had to tell me to let Rylan do it. I guess I was butting into Rylan's playtime.
Rylan's favorite spot was a small tunnel. He can't get enough of these. He seemed to enjoy standing up and grabbing onto the top to help guide him. A pink hippo finished up the day by slowly munching on Rylan. Lucky for us though, he spit him out gently.
