A few weeks ago while chatting with my friend Beth on Facebook, I suggested we meet up somewhere, one day and let the kids play. She readily agreed and after a little research we decided Chehaw Park in Albany would be about half way for both of us. We went today and just had the best time, ever!
There is a zoo at this place along with a large pavilion, tons of places to picnic, and best of all a pirate ship playground!!! First off, the animals. Wow, they had a large variety of cool animals to see. From rhinos and black bears to a copperhead snakes and alligators, we saw a lot!
Yes, he was pulling his sister.
We enjoyed a lovely picnic of pb&j sandwiches, Capri sun, chips and fruit. Surprisingly enough, the fruit was the biggest hit!
After what seemed like an eternity (only an hour) and millions of "I want to go play on the pirate ship" we turned them loose to play on the gigantic play thingy! Well, I use the term "turned them loose" very loosely! There were 3 bus loads of kids that invaded the place about the time we sat down to our picnic. And they didn't leave until about 5 minutes before we did! So, we didn't exactly turn them loose!
This picture doesn't do this thing justice, jsyk!
