That is a pretty spot for kids to play in kind2creatures, we have a playground just down the road from us, and there are always some children playing there, I can see them from our kitchen window, most of the play equipment is plastic and metal, but the one the kids seem to like the most is like a two seat merry go round.
And there is one at the nearest beach to us that is also an adult playgrround


And just oposite our city centre is a park with a lovely playground with a swing for the wheelchair bound as well, and just a little bit further along is a set of exercise equipment for adults.

Yes. Natural. My sister and I use to make mud cookies, and try to sell them for a few pennies. We thought that was a good deal. Of course, those were the days when gasoline was 20 cents a gallon. So a few cents for a dried mud cookie should have been worth it. Our first disappointment in the business world.

So, we got the rest of the neighborhood kids to help us make a play. We used one of the neighbor's porch as a stage. We charged a nickle. We had a large audience. A sellout crowd of mostly mothers. I din't understand why fathers did not show up. Looking back, I'd have to say, "How embarrassing". But it gave us a lot of confidence and molded friendships.
