If you’re traveling with 2 toddlers, it’s mandatory to seek out a local playground. It’s a must!
Thankfully Springdale has a quaint little park in the middle of town with breath taking views of the surrounding rock formations, stretching up to the sky.
I snapped a few photos with the front facing cam on my Moto X, while trying to get the boys to laugh.
The playground was perfect for the boys. A few different slides, lots of swings, various obstacles and a rope bridge!
The boys were fascinated with the rope bridge, as it was there first encounter with such an obstacle.
Dylan crossed the bridge over and over (and over!), taking the curved slide down on the other end.
Ashton preferred the straight double slides and took rides down them most of the time.
The playground also has a kiddie sized telescope. The boys took turns looking through the lens to view the mountains, but Ashton particularly took a liking to it. He just kept going back to peer through the scope again and again.
While Dylan and I were walking around the park, we came upon a ladybug. I let it crawl onto my finger and Dylan stared at it with curiosity. I asked him if he wanted it to crawl on his finger, he said yes, but he held up his shaking finger with trepidation. Once it crawled onto his index digit, he cracked the biggest smile across his face. I then had him hold his hand up, ready to snap the perfect photo. But alas, just as I was about to take the picture, the ladybug flew up into the air and away.
We had a great time there and Springdale town park certainly has the toddler stamp of approval!
Another post is coming soon about our hike on the Riverwalk trail in Zion national park.
