i love the park across the road. we have been there at least once a day since we moved in and the kids are loving every single minute. it's so nice. out the front door, run across the road... and run to the park. the other day, while they ran and played and laughed and sang (well, madeline sang) i lay under a tree and just, for the first time in ages, just did nothing. other than watch them play, i did nothing.
after all the stress of moving, packing, unpacking, the endless phonecalls sorting things out, changing addresses for everything you can think of... it was nice to have some down time. our new house is lovely - and the park life is a beautiful added bonus.
the kids are loving it and so am i.
