Children's Garden

Sunday was such a nice day, so we decided to make the most of it.

We decided to have a picnic in Assiniboine Park on a whim. I was explaining to Logan about "Carpe Diem" and how we were going to seize the day.  No kidding, this is what he said,

Mum, Latin is a dead language.

WTF?  How did he know that?  I asked him about it after and he said he heard it on a movie, but still, I was blown away.

As we were packing up, Logan was in the backyard and we saw Sydney. Remembering of course that Sydney is Logan's babysitter and our neighbour and according to Logan, his girlfriend.  He adores her.

So we asked if she wanted to come along. She did, so off we went.

I have yet to go to the Children's Garden, but I have heard it's amazing, but really really busy.

That was very true.

It has lush gardenscapes, but yet, so much of it is hands on and the kids can climb, jump whatever. 

There are kid-size doors everywhere, which is the coolest thing.    Many of the exhibits and "green" that you see above are actually made of rubber, so it's kind of bouncy to walk on.  Zach and Logan's favorite was this massive mountain with slides, and Zach also really enjoyed the sand/water feature they had.

One of the things I liked was this saucer swing.  Here's a  picture of it:



They have ample picnice space available and there is even a furry animal to keep you company... Not really sure what animal it is exactly...
Anyways, after playing for awhile, we had our picnic and then stopped at Tim's for a treat on the way home. Logan was going to get a cookie, but changed it to a Ice Cap when Syd ordered one.  LOL.

Zach had a great time too, but with so much to see and take in at once, he was a little overstimulated and got really really silly. So once we got back, we had some quiet reading time.

It was a great afternoon though!

p.s. I didn't take these pictures, my camera battery died, so I had to find some pics off the internet of what I was talking about. lol.
