A Children’s Village
This past Friday we visited the new Children’s Village at the Botanic Gardens in town. I was absolutely amazed, and the kids had a blast. I think this is going to be our new go-to destination. They had statues, and sculptures…. a large wooden dome with plenty of wooden chairs and a big bucket of chalk for all those budding little artists….wooden paths through the pond leading to teepees….plenty of hands on experiments….not to mention, a door leading to a far away land…and of course a puppet theatre…There were many other fun things including, sand pits, a floating bridge, plenty of picnic tables, and a grassy area for sack races. There were also plenty of beautiful plants, flowers and veggies growing around the village. We had so much fun and the kids have been asking over and over to go again, now if only it wasn’t 34 degrees and raining. Hopefully we’ll get another little patch of nice weather, when I’m sure our first stop will be this amazing children’s village.
