A perfect place for an imagination....


We have this wonderful park that is like a "secret garden" for children in our area. It is full of the most beautiful flowers and plants plus everything you could imagine. It has a magical little tree playhouse, ponds full of fish and tadpoles, swings, a butterfly garden, a fairy park, a train and even a "fake" cloud that rains on the roof when you press a button.

My kids love going there and this time we took Nana with us! My kids enjoyed a little science class where they did a flower experiment with a plant botanist. {Looking for worms to feed the toads}

He was great with the kids and I even learned a little too.

It's a perfect place for an afternoon and a child's like imagination~

Dear Sandy Toes,
Where is that wonderful park? I live in central Ohio and have gathered that you live in Ohio too. I'm wondering if it is reasonably close to us? Do you mind sharing?
Thanks!!
