A fun day at the park

We enjoyed a day at Pullen Park over Memorial Day weekend with Jen (our oldest daughter), Madison (our granddaughter), Rob (our son-in-law) and Donna (Rob's mother). We packed up the cars with a picnic lunch, our ball gloves and the "Titanic".

It was a beautiful mild day, about 80 degrees with a slight breeze, just perfect!

Here we are on the paddle boats. (Jen, Maddie, and me)
















A game of throw and catch.














Maddie rode the carousel. She picked the cute black and white pig.













We took a train ride around the park.
Maddie helped Papa launch his boat "The Titanic". You can read more about these little boats at Putt Putt Boats.















And we finished the day off with some juicy sweet watermelon!







A fun day at the park, and we all had a great time!
