Weekend in the City: Why Hello Again Playgrounds

Our neighbourhood friends and I have commented many times how little we see each other in the winter.
Once we can get outdoors it's like we come back to life.
The playground especially is a hub of activity.
You're almost guaranteed to run into a friend or two.
If not, you usually make a new one.
We're a little behind on playground season since we had those 2 glorious weeks away.
This weekend, though, we got back to it.
The playground by our community hall is a true gem.
Not only does it contain our local spray park but it has the greatest vintage equipment.
It also has a couple chess tables which make me reminiscent of the parks in Paris.
Not to mention it's blocks away from our Farmer's Market, also a gem.

One of these community friends I speak of happened to be on route to her dance recital when we bumped into her {at the park of course}.
We took a chance and ended up with the last 2 seats in the house.
Fiona didn't stop talking about it for the rest of the day and is now enrolled for September.
Daddy was absent due to some necessary catching up at the shop on Saturday.
 We made up for it with a trip to our other playground on Sunday and brunch at our favourite diner.
We missed you playgrounds, good to be back.
