Morning at the Park

"I see!" says Caroline, as she watches the big backhoe very nearby at the park today. 

My brother and I played on this playground when it was brand-new (and on the one that was here before that) and that was 23 years ago. Now they are getting ready to raze the whole thing in favor of a modern upgrade. Honestly, it could probably use it, but of course I can't help feel a bit nostalgic, especially since my own kids have now logged a few hours over the years playing here as well. 

I consider it a great privilege to share these places and memories with my own munchkins. It is astonishing how much time can pass while everything changes, and nothing changes.
