“The joy here is amazing!”
We two adults made a quick stop just to see what it was about while we were passing through. We spent nearly an hour!
It was utterly delightful to hear the kids exploring and having such a wonderful time in nature with books - no electronic devices, no structured play, just BEING KIDS. We wandered from storybook to storybook, sat a few minutes in each, enjoyed the flowers and enjoyed all the happiness.
It's hard to explain - this is going to be my favorite memory of the summer, and such a serendipity!
