Deanna Rose Park - Kansas

Randy, Addison and I made a quick trip out to Kansas a couple of weeks ago to pick up a camp trailer for Randy to live in while he is in Vernal. I have to admit that I was very proud of Addison. She rode so well in the car. The only time that she really fussed to get out of the car was at 1:30 AM after she had been in the car for 17 hours! And she wasn't really fussing to get out of the car, she was fussing because she wanted to go to bed in "Addi's bed". Randy said that he couldn't listen to Addi's sad cry for another hour, so we got a hotel room right outside of Kansas City. The next day we took Addison to a fun little park that Randy's sister had told us about, to let her run around and play. It is called the Deanna Rose Childrens Farmstead.

Addison is posing for the camera. Don't you love her pretty smile? (She was mad at me because I made her stop what she was doing to look at the camera!)
Of course, we had to stop and see the ducks. That was the first place Addison ran to.
Trying to catch a koi fish with her bare hands. Well, she'd try if she could get over the railing!
Addison wanted to ride the tractor SO badly, but alas, her mother is too mean and wouldn't let her!
"Moo moo"
"Whoo whoo"
Addison would go to each animal's cage and talk to them in their language. What a social little girl!
Addison and her mommy. Don't we look great for 18 hours on the road and 4 hours of sleep? I think so! (Just kidding!)
"Boo, white, wed, lellow"
Addison was pointing to each of the individual butterflies and telling me what color they are. She is such a little smartie pants!
This position was the best way for Addison to turn the wheel. She could have cared less what she was turning it for, she was just turning it.
We tried to walk away from this thing (still not quite sure exactly what it is), but it kept pulling Addison back!
Thanks to our neighbors, Addison showed no fear in petting the baby goat!
Please note that the next three photos are not the same! Addison had to try every single rocking thinger (sorry, I don't know what they are called) out on the playground!

We had such a great time at this park! And it was free! Randy and I kept saying how neat it would be to have something like this closer to home. Thanks for the great idea, Cheryl!

I think her face at the mine shaft is cute! I'm so glad that she did so well in the car.

It looks like a fun little stop over on your road trip. Addi looked like she had a great time!

It would be great to have something like this closer to home, maybe like . . . oh let me see . . . Willow Park maybe? I'm so glad that Addi was good in the car. She is in training for our ride to Disneyland!
