Living in urban Philadelphia, nature is not actually that far away. Clark Park and Fairmount Park are hard to top as urban parks. Even closer to home (literally), albeit on a much smaller scale, is our Bird Sanctuary, a dead space behind a bunch of houses that the local community association took control over a few years ago, and since then us neighbors have helped tame it into a really great place for people of all ages to hand out in.
So last weekend, when Jada had not one but two play dates with classmates, we ended both get-togethers in the Bird Sanctuary. As you can see from the pics and video, the kids all had a great time. Nice to have nature so close to our house - literally right outside our back door!
