A Super Weekend (Part 2)

On Sunday, Grammy and Pop-Pop decided to take me a place that they actually learned about from my Mommy, the Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse. Just like the name says, there is a large house to play in and several play areas outside. The whole place is just for kids who are 5 years old and younger to have fun and it's also one of Grammy's favorite words... something called "free".* Grammy brought her camera along so, here are some pics that we took while we were there. You can click on each of them for a larger view.

PIC #1: Fairmont Park entrance, front and side views of the playhouse, the giant slide, and several play areas outside. The giant slide was my favorite thing to do outside. Grammy and Pop-Pop took turns riding on it with me. While we were doing that, someone was having a birthday party on the side porch of the playhouse!

PIC #2: After we played outside for a while and rode on the giant slide, Grammy and Pop-Pop wanted to take a break from the hot sun so, we decided to go inside the playhouse. On the first floor, there was another house to play in and a staircase to play on in the corner. A few pics of us on the giant slide are mixed in here too!

PIC #3: Some other things that were on the first floor are a wooden train that was big enough to play on and you know how much I like trains! I also found a big book that had something called "magnetic words" on it. I could move the words around on the book anyway that I wanted to and learn how to say them. Pop-Pop was helping me with the words in the book because some of them were big words that I didn't know how to say.

PIC #4: After I did everything there was to do on the first floor of the playhouse, we decided to go up to the second floor. We found a big room up there with all kinds of toys. Shortly after we got up there, guess what I found? A Thomas, Annie, & Claribelle train on the floor and a big train table! We actually visited the second floor twice, just so that I could play with the trains again.

PIC #5: The last stop in the playhouse for us was the lower level (basement). This was also the coolest place in the playhouse. When we got down there, I found all kinds of trikes, cars, and other things to ride on. They were parked in different places around the room so that the road could be clear for something called "traffic". And, wouldn't you know it... there was even a traffic light down there too!

We had a great time at the Smith Memorial Playground & Playhouse and I may be going back there again with my family later this week. It was a great ending to a fun weekend with Grammy and Pop-Pop. I did miss my little sister Sophia and I can't wait until she is big enough to have fun on these trips with me!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
