Today we headed to Salisbury and we checked out the Dan Nicholas State Park. We met up with GrandBob and Suzette. If you live anywhere close, you should check it out! It really is a neat place for kids.
They have a little train ride, a carousel, paddle boats, a barn with animals, a nature center with snakes and fish, a wildlife area with all kinds of animals (black bears, foxes, deer, etc.), a splash pad, and some playgrounds. They even had a gem mine and a mini golf course but we didn’t do those. Most things cost 50 cents or a dollar to do.
It was a fun day exploring everything the park had to offer. The low point was when Will slid and fell and cut the back of his head. He thankfully recovered quickly and let me clean it up. We also got run out of a picnic shelter but they pointed us to another area a short distance away.
Getting ready to ride the train! The itty bitty train. It was a tight squeeze for Drew and I in one car! The one and only picture I’m in. And I took it myself! Getting ready to ride the carousel. I was going to take pictures during the ride but I couldn’t because it was moving too fast! There was no way I was letting go of Lindy. But I think it was the first carousel ride Lindy has ever enjoyed. Today she was smiling and saying, “Weeeee!” We took a walk around the lake. Looked at animals in the barn. Saw some wild animals (in cages!) Played at the playground! And was unsuccessful at getting the kids to look in the holes at the same time.
All in all, a fun, hot day!
