Watkins Park 2008

We went to Watkins Park for playgroup a few weeks ago. The Pilkerton kiddos were staying with Grammie, so we invited them along for the trip. We had a really great time and the weather was perfect!

We rode the carousel first.....

After we rode the carousel, we went for a train ride.....

The picture's a bit blurry, but can you find the tree person??

Baa Ram Mew (5 points if you get the movie reference)

When the kiddos saw this cow, Hannah exclaimed "That's a lot of steak!"

Train tracks!

After we rode the train, we went to the farm.....

He may feel soft and furry, but look at his eee-vil eyes!


This is some pig...some BIG pig!

Tom and his friend

Ducks, geese and swans!

Is your momma a llama?


The peacocks were chasing each other around their pen. There was only one hen in the whole bunch and she was running from the peacocks the whole time.

Sitting pretty on the swings

Josiah and Ashley loved the zipline

Riley runs across the dangling bridge

The bumpy slide was a big hit!

Noah rides the turtle

Even though Grammie fell and had a busted lip and knee, she still was able to ride down the slide!

Here's a video from on the carousel.....

I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
