You want to know the best thing about living in the city with so many urban parks nearby? You can literally roll out of bed and bounce to events like this annual fall festival that happens every year. No brainer for a way to spend a pretty sunday afternoon. Hit up the farmer’s market at the end of the block and you’ve taken care of groceries for that night’s dinner plus apples for a pie. Who needs a back yard?
Ok, before you all start thinking we’re living the perfect urban life, I should say that the pony ride was a measly 1 lap around the grassy square, that bringing farm animals in for a temporary petting zoo feels a bit depressing for the animals, and we dealt with 1 ridiculously grumpy child for half the activities. Plus the playground is going to be torn up soon and in construction for 12-18 MONTHS as the second phase of the block long park renovation. We’ll be living next to a construction site for awhile. So, um, yeah.
