While there are many to choose from in our little town, this one has been our favorite from the very beginning. Not just because it is the closest to us, but because it offers the most shade, swinging, climbing and sliding options and the softest landing when you are, say; learning to swing, climb and slide. City folks know it as Ashley-Dearing, in our home it’s referred to as Alden Park, named for a sweet first friend of Zuzu’s we used to see there routinely. This last vist was particularly sweet because it was the first time the Quail was utterly mobile. Zuzu off and independent. Me just grinning, Lovey on his way with lunch. A perfect late morning for a little family.
