In praise of parks

Dd4 is about to become dd5 in just a few days! To mark the event, we invited her enrichment class cohort to join us at a park for a pizza picnic lunch today. Such a (relatively) easy way to have a birthday party! :) A park comes with a playset or two already, hence no need to rent a "bounce house". Cleanup is perfect--throw everything in the big park garbage can and don't worry about the cupcake crumbs on the ground because the wasps are already coming to scavenge. Shade is provided by the trees. And everyone has fun without the need to plan elaborate and/or costly activities! Hooray for parks! Guess I might end up voting for the local mill levy increase this fall....
