at the playground

November 22, 2009
So today I hung out with EB and EBB1. We went to the playground at Rockport Elementary School. Man, I have to say - playgrounds have gotten truly amazing.

First off was this giant structure. It's, like, almost more sized for adults than kids...


Kind of a fun shot by EB...


But this was the main attraction -- man it was huge! Like 4 or 5 slides, lots of climbing things, chimes to play music, some weird interactive things almost out of the Museum of Science, signs with sign language or braille on one side and jokes or phrases the other to try it out on... (and in the background, that wavy thing that is this crazy kind of multi-person, no-big-impact seesaw.


But of course EB and I had been playing the new Wii Mario game, and I noted that this random bit of asphalt looked an awful lot like the bushrooms from the game, and EB had to live out his Mario fantasies...
