A Day At The Park
A couple of months ago I went to the park with my nephew. I remember the day like it was yesterday. The weather was cool and clouds were overhead. I sat by myself and watched him play and watched everything happen around me. I wasn’t expecting to find so many interesting things just watching people, but amazed at what I did discover. Children were all over the place and were wearing coats that had their favorite characters on them.
A girl had purple mittens with a Teletubby on them and a boy had a blue coat with Thomas the Train on it. One small boy with green eyes had a hat with a ball on the top. There were only two mothers at the park and seven children not including a baby by the side of one of the mothers. The baby was asleep and was bundled up in two blankets, one pink and one had bunnies on it. The children were all playing a game of tag and were out of breath from running around. One of the boys involved in the game fell down and began to cry.
His mother broke away from conversations to tend to the need of her son. After a few minutes, he was fine. While that was going on, the other children discovered that when they went down the slide it shocked them. They screamed with delight every time they went down the red plastic slide. After a while, they started another game of tag.
The kids ran as fast as they could. They would kick up wet sand all over their backs as they ran. Before I knew it, it was time to leave as my nephew and I walked back to my car the thought of being a kid again would be great. All in all, the park was something that I never thought that I would enjoy so much, but I found it to be very interesting.
