Laumeier Sculpture park

on August 18, 2011

Beautiful weather in August? We’ll take it!

Last week we decided that we needed to head to the great outdoors and enjoy the nice day. Park? Been there, done that. Several times. Zoo? Was there not too long ago… I wanted to go somewhere that we had never been before and somewhere the kids would enjoy. More importantly, somewhere I could handle both kids by myself. So we drove to Laumeier Sculpture park. We have never been and I have always wanted to check it out.

It was a beautiful day and the park wasn’t crowded when we got there. The weather was perfect as well. Which was good because it is quite a bit of walking on some not always level terrain. I got my workout while pushing a stroller down gravel paths, up dirt hills and over grass. Whew! Zachary did get out and got to walk and play for a bit as well. Emily really loved looking at the sculptures but loved the ones that she could interact with more. I think Zachary’s favorite piece was the bleachers in the Children’s section. He could have spent all day climbing up and down.

We had a great day and had great timing. As we were leaving, 100 kids from a YMCA summer camp arrived. They were loud and a little on the rude side. After we left, we headed to Sonic for lunch. The kids their coupons for ice cream and slushes from the library program and Emily had been getting to use.

It was really a great day!
