On the day of Ethan’s birthday, we went with our friend Mio and her son Kazushi to a park about half an hour from our house. It was our first time to visit this park and the kids absolutely loved it. In addition to the standard swings and slide, there was a huge slide, a merry-go-round, a couple of see saws, and some great climbing equipment and obstacle courses. Our friend Mio made a cake and we enjoyed eating it picnic-style on the grass. We all decided that we would definitely have to go there again. Here are some pictures of the day.
