Shh... It's a secret.
Well, it MUST be a secret. Yesterday I discovered there's a park just around the block from my house. No lie! We bought our house back in 2002 and not once in the last four years did anyone show me this park much less mention it's existence! Yesterday a girl from work who lives a few blocks away from me brought this flyer that she found on her door. There's going to be a kid's carnival at Hidden Park and it had a map. I pointed out where I live and the route I take on my walks. I've never seen this park! Well, in my defense it is down an alley and even with a dog I don't go down alleys alone. Plus there are no signs pointing it out from any of the main roads. So last night Nickel, Peanut, and Snoogans (the dog) and I went on a very short walk (around the freakin' block!) to Hidden Park (it's real name) and played for about 30 minutes. There's not much to this little park. Just a big 6-person swing (you remember, like the one you had at elementary school growing up) and a slide. When we got there, there wasn't a single soul in the park. It was kind of nice, the weather was perfect and Peanut got to play (I even swung). Nickel and I wondered why there wasn't anymore playground equipment.
