All about Abbott!

...
As a mother of two toddlers, parks really have become my sanctuary. Only at a park is it acceptable for your child to get away with eating sticks, peeing on a tree occasionally and running full speed ahead without having to be called back. In a park if my child is LOUD or has a tantrum it seems to be a little more accepted--- well at least I am in good company. It is a place where Nannies, Grannies and Mommies unite for a safe sanctuary in crazy kid land.

We have specific parks for different times of day based on the shade factor. I am amazed at how many Dallas parks get awesome shade in the morning but not so much in the afternoon. Care to go down a slide that has been roasting in 105 degree direct sunlight? No thank you.

Well it is now official. I am in love with my favorite new park. In fact, it has now made it to the top of all my favorite parks in the area and I only have my friend Caroline to thank for this awesome find! I love you Caroline... I can't wait to explore this great find with you.

The May children are all about Abbott Park.

It is just a short drive away in Highland Park.


The animals are friendly.

And it is right on the drive home for Daddy! Whoo hoo!
The kids had a BLAST playing on all the different equipment -especially the car. In fact, if we know you there is a chance that Molly "drove us to your house".
Turtle or Dinosaur? That was the debate.
I especially liked that there really weren't that many openings at the top of the play structures. Gabriel could be FREE to roam without me right on his heels!


Molly was a fan of all the houses.
Abbott Park was so much fun and in spite of a few tumbles we had a blast!

We highly recommend this park~

It looks like ya'll had a great time! I bet Gabriel really appreciated you standing over him snapping photos as he's crying on the ground. I love it!

yeah, I could tell by his cry that he was more stunned then hurt so one picture couldn't hurt. I can't wait for you to go to the beach so I can hear about your adventures... just know Angela... Delaware can not keep you again. I will definitely protest.
