Urasoe Dai Park

Two posts in one day, woah! This is part two of our day. The beach was before lunch, this was after. No fun pictures of lunch, we didn't have a lot of yennage on us, so we opted for on base, Macaroni Grill, yum.

Getting to this park was not nearly as easy. Directions like "turn at the second light" can be so subjective.

There's the park down there, and lucky us, while we were out looking at it, a parking spot opened up. So, down the hill we go.
Them's my boys.

Here's the park from below instead of above. The really cool slide was closed. Not sure why. I'm sure the sign explained, but oh, the language barrier.

And the even cooler slide on the other side of the playground that was also closed. All the more reason to go back later when it is warmer. Both of these slides have rollers on the bottom, so no getting stuck. I am sure they are very fun to go down. We'll update you once we get a chance to try.

Kids are such monkeys.

Oh, a normal smile, so cute too.

The corkscrew thing-a-ma-jig at this playground was really cool. Seth is at the top and Vaughn is on the side.

Is that Steven playing, having fun, and wait, wait, even SMILING! Holy cow, maybe acting perpetually bored got tiring.

There is a rhino head sculpture. Don't ask me why, go ask your mother.

Such a photogenic child. And his front teeth are finally coming back in! He can eat an apple again, hooray!

Garrett going up the loop de loop and Steven coming down.

Boo Boo, are you stuck?

We got ice cream from a vending machine. Even though the day was not sunny and a little chilly they were still tasty. Except for the green one Garrett picked, it was not so tasty. He threw it away and we got him another. Sorry,I didn't think to take a picture of those, too busy with my own ice cream.

Since we had come down the hill, we had to go back up. Coming down was much it generally is.

On the way home, Jerry saw this crazy little drive and just had to go down it. We were trying to get to the road at the other end, but jeez.
Yeah, we ended up having to back out and find another way. I am kind of partial to the top of the van as it is.

Even though the weather was not very beautiful, we had fun. We saw more of Okinawa and that is always fun. Tomorrow, the aquarium.
