Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Jamison Square

 {Ruari’s style //Dress: thrifted//Sandals: Saltwater’s thrifted//}

Last Friday… I really needed to get out of the house (we may have had a major meltdown day… oh man). SO, I called Mandey to see what she was up to. I made my way over to 23rd… and there was a thrift store. Right there. Bwa ha ha. So, I bought a table. Then, met up with Mandey. We quickly realized that the small 23rd Ave sidewalks weren’t going to work with my stroller and her double stroller… so, we walked over to the Pearl.

Jamison Square Park. This park is like a kid’s dream! Blocks to climb on, water to pee in play in, and a grassy spot for a picnic. In the middle of the city. The Pearl District. Just a quick walk away from where my hubs and I got married (on the beautiful terrace of the Ecotrust building).

Anywho, we had a lovely time. This was the first time I met Mandey’s boys. They are pretty darn adorable. Carrying around their little cars with them… everywhere! Ha! Cute.

    • The Paper Mama on said:
