Parks

One of my priorities when we first got here was searching for parks.  Through some research online.  We found Robot Park.  It is two trains and 4 stops away from our place.  We've been there twice so far and I'm guessing we'll go back one last time before we leave.  Whenever we go to a park, the kids get to interact with some of the local children.  It is so fun to watch. 

This slide is part of several slides in a row
The favorite at this park is the long slide
Abby and one of her friends.  This little girl followed Abby around wherever she went.  They had a lot of fun together.

This park we stumbled upon while on a family walk.  It's about a 10 minute walk from our place.  The favorite here is the rocket slide as well as the space to run around.






Making a few more friends
The girl on the left thought Ethan was SO funny!  They all played chase for quite some time.  Ethan was the chaser of course.  



The kids have also enjoyed chasing the pigeons here.  It started with Ethan and Abby then all the other kids joined in.

LOVE! Such great pics and I love that they are making little friends! So, so cute. Also, maybe Japan can call up the local park departments and give them some pointers. What fun parks!
