Thank goodness one of my facebook friends posted a picture of her kids at the park. A light bulb went off, I crawled out from under my rock, and now know about Benson Park.
I know parks aren't that big of a deal. I mean they are all over Omaha. This one is different.
The have a new splash pad. I don't care how old you are, splashing in water is fun!
*Bring water shoes.
The boys kept spraying each other.
Boy will be boys. They kept standing over the sprayers to make it look like they were peeing. I gave them the evil eye of disapproval that my grandma taught me.
Mica in particular would wait and wait for the buckets of water to fill up and fall on his head.
Since it's warm they dried off quickly. They then played on the playground equipment. They have a gigantic playground!
*Bring tennis shoes. We didn't. The climbing things would have been safer, and easier if they had tennis shoes.
This sort of gives you an idea on size, but there's a lot not showing.
Mica liked their porthole.
The there were cool random different things like this music box. When you hit it different bell sounds would play.
A car spinner.
A sand and water spinner.
A play clock.
A dino facts table.
A weather table.
They have a pond with ducks, a fountain, and a dock to go out on. there's pavilions, picnic tables, and more!
We'll for sure go back there!
