Today, George and I trekked to Schenley Park. First, we played at Anderson Playground because we parked near it and no one in the history of the world has been able to keep a four-year-old out of a playground. Many times when we see a park while driving and he asks to go, we tell him it’s closed. That’s pretty hard to explain when there are children in the park already. Telling him that they work there has only worked one time and I don’t think he actually fell for it.
After way too long at the park, we took the steps down into Panther Hollow.
I’d seen the lake from the bridge above but never been down to walk around it. We set off.
I thought we would have a peaceful time enjoying the stillness of the water and was not expecting the sheer amount of frogs. What a surprise!
After playing with them for a while, we headed towards the other side of the lake where a trail would take us into Oakland.
The trail took us near this old stone bridge.
At this point, George was getting a little tired so he asked to ride on my shoulders. I think he regretted it immediately because we were crossing Schenley Bridge and it was very high.
We finally made it to the Porch at Schenley Plaza and had a good lunch despite what his face may say.
After lunch we headed over to Dippy to say hi!
and then the library to play with the trains.
