Join the rest of the crazy masses at Pullen Park on a Friday morning! This was our first visit to the park. It has been closed for a while now for renovations. I went a couple times in college and even have friends who got engaged at the park. There are the typical park features with swings, play structures, sandboxes, and even see saws. Then there are the extra cool features: the train, boats, carousel, resaurant (that has LOCOPOPS!), and tons of pretty areas just screaming "photo op!"
We met up with Matt and Alicia with their boys Brantley and Brayden, and also Jason and Leslie with thier boys Max and Charlie. Max, Brantley, and Ben were all born in the same week so they have a neat friendship.
We were all haveing flashes forward to about 13 years to a car full of boys
Alicia and her boys
Ben cried everytime the train pulled away until we got on it. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME
Aaaand Brantley cried when they had to get off the boats
This sweet chubby boy did not make a peep the whole day. He was so pleasant and happy
Sweet daddy/son moment (or Zeke being disciplined for acting a fool)
My big boys
The carousel is inside and these boys were in awe
Ben was excited... Spence was more excited
Zeke refused to ride an animal, so he Ellie and I chilled on this
(I ended up being happy he did, this is the fastest merry-go-round I have ever been on and Zeke began saying "wow, I'm getting dizzy, this is sooo fast" about half way through)
Leslie and Charlie
Our lunch spread
My sweet girl
a little bubble action
Ben's fave mode of transportation lately
