Sliding down a frog's tongue

We spent an action packed afternoon at Orleigh Park today. It really made me wish that Aaron could walk because the playground was designed for children to explore. Weeell, I only half wished it because everything has its time and he will walk eventually and I'll probably wish he didn't. But when he CAN walk, I'll definitely be spending time in this park. There were trails, bridges, an oasis....up and down terrain. Really fun stuff for anyone learning to walk.

This area in the playground seemed specially designed for younger children. The slides were more gradual and everything things seemed lower. The long pink slide is actually the tongue of a big green frog. The grandfather on the left is leaning on it so you can't really see it in the picture. I like that beautiful tree in the center.

Here's Aaron sliding down the tongue. I think I'll just let go completely next time. He's getting the hang of slides....

I think if I was a kid I would be terrified of that frog eating me.

It looks well planned and imaginative.
