“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
So, there is something about this little park that feels a bit Alice-in-Wonderland magical to me. It looks different every time we visit (and we visit often). Something new is always in bloom through the spring and summer, so the wonder of discovery is always fresh, here. There are no swings, or slides, but out of the zillion parks here that have those in abundance, this one is my littles’ very favorite (and mine). It’s quiet, with so many lovely things to take in, and talk about. Or just soak in, while your daughter reads, and your sons show you fascinating leaf specimens (and bugs) they find nearby….
We didn’t even have to fall
a h0le and bump our heads.
