Baltimore Part 2

Our trip has gotten better. Here's the proof:

Lily and I went to the mother of all playgrounds today. Seriously, this is every little boy and girls' fantasy land come to life. I couldn't believe how amazing this jungle gym was. The pictures don't do it justice, but it's incredible.

And Lily was happy to just play on the rocking horse at first.
Here's the view from one of several towers the kids could climb upon. This is only half the park.
But Lily preferred to try to swing on the tire.
Last shot of this mind-numbingly cool park. I still can't get over how cool this place was. If there hadn't been mothers and kids all over the place... yeah, I would have played on it.
I was very excited to take Lily to her first temple. Kat had never seen the D.C. temple before either. It's my favorite. You can see why.
And.... I got a kiss at the doors. This is Lily rehearsing for her wedding day.
As soon as we walked into the Visitor's Center, Lily said, "Oh, big Jesus." She really enjoyed all the pictures of the Savior. Outside the center is a reflection pool, and if you stand at a certain spot, the temple is reflected on the water's surface. Lily called it the Temple Water.
Fun with Mom (especially being tickled to death)
Plus fun with Dad (being rolled up in lots of blankets)
Equals a very happy and beautiful girl.

That is an incredibly awesome playground! You should have played on it even though there were others around. They'll probably never see you again anyway. :) I'm glad you guys are having fun on your trip!

THat's my dream of a playground. Do ya think we can build that in our backyard? Naturally, Lily, like most kids, is content with the simple things. Good quality to have. Loved the kiss at the temple pic.

Looks like you guys had a great trip. That playground looks like lots of fun you should of played Jacob. I have seen one similar in Harlan, Iowa. They have a really nice wooden one too.
