In 2002, we found only one little sad playground. It had a slide.
Now there are lots of playgrounds in the center of town, including this one. It has a slide.
And a teeter-totter. When they saw it, Isaac and Eleanor asked me what it was. I had to teach them how to use it! (And yes, Eleanor nearly got catapulted across the street.)
And stacks of brightly painted tires for those moments when you feel moved to strike poses...
or to take up hoop-rolling.
