|Bobby the Best Baby in the World|
so anyway...enough of my whining...gawsh...i sound like my kids! i knew that we had a lot to do yesterday, so i wanted to make sure to run them around and i was in Downey for the Dr. appointment and knew that Heritage Park wasnt far...only my droid took me to the Santa Fe Heritage Park...not the Cerritos one that i wanted/intended to go to.
So here is my review of the Santa Fe Heritage Park:
very small. focus on native american and 1800s ranch living in southern california. not a whole lot to do for little ones. my boys almost destroyed their fancy garden.

This park is adorable (minus the nasty ducks and their duck poop everywhere) - the whole park is set up like Boston circa American Revolution...there is a statue of Paul Revere at the front of the park and the Wadsworth poem goes on throughout the park. i tried to have a conversation with Bryson about the American Revolution and how America got started...fail...miserable fail...but whatever, it was the beginning of a conversation, right? i am just planting the seeds in his fertile little mind...i try to throw as many seeds in there as i can...hoping some will take root...okay...overdone analogy...
|Can you see the heart of water in this tree? My boys are drawn to dirt in any form...|
Its a fun little park - i highly recommend it for playdates and even birthday parties (there is a picnic table area with several tables) - a little something for every little type...
