Open Spaces + Downtown Buildings+ Food Trucks (with adult beverages!) = Best Playdate Ever!

Wow, what a weekend!  Last soccer practice, putting up the Christmas tree, and then the BEST PLAYDATE EVER!  ;)  Hilary and I talked about taking the kids to the new Klyde Warren Park for awhile now, and we finally got to go today.  Now, for Auds it was old news.  Her daddy lives downtown.  She thinks of this park as "HER" park.  Her and James walk there all the time.  It was so funny when we were leaving, and I told Audrey to get in the car to go to the the Downtown Park, and she acted all shocked, saying, "Daddy says we just walk to the park!"  Well not from Mommy's house girlfriend!

I didn't know what to expect, but this park was AMAZING.  It had everything: 

Amazing hills to roll down . . .

A super cool climbing area. . .

 Picture perfect rocks to sit on.  :)

Lots of free space to run around . . . 

Food trucks GALORE.  Where to eat???

Much needed adult beverages for the mommies.  Where else can you watch your kiddos play and sip on a Miller Lite?!

Beautiful scenery.

Lunch with friends!

Look who stopped by!  James knew we were going to the park, and had to stop by to see his girl.  He lives just a few blocks from the park.

High fives

Everyone there was so friendly.  The kids couldn't help but make friends with everyone they saw.

Fun artwork

This sealed the deal for me.  An outdoor magazine/book area where you can just grab whatever you want to read?!!  Sign me up!

And there's a sand area?

The kiddos were begging for ice cream at the end.  And with a bunch of fun food trucks stocked with ice cream sandwiches made with homemade cookies, what did Audrey want?  Yes.  A covered banana with chocolate and sprinkles.  This picture will haunt her the rest of her life.  ;)  I will save it for her Rehearsal Dinner slide show.  Because I am an awesome mommy like that.

Auds and I really had such a fun day playing with Hilary, Cade, and Devyn.  We can't wait to go back!
