So this is a bit of a round up post. In my rush to get out my last post I managed to miss the fact that we had a lovely day at the park on Saturday. Kenko no Mori is really our go to park for having a good family time. I would say it was the equivalent of the Stanley Park of my youth. There is no aquarium or zoo but for a nice weather Saturday when you want to be outside with the family it is hard to beat.
We actually got out of the house by ten, which is rare for us. When we got to the park we started with some grass sledding. Unfortunately, the predominant wind was from the volcano and was bringing ash. This did not slow us down and we kept on sliding. Next we went to the playground and played in the sand.
Next up we went over the the big field for some ball kicking, frisbee throwing and kite flying. At the far edge of the field are two bronze horse statues. The requisite pictures were taken.
