But we rode on. The dark clouds continued to gather, so we stopped by #25 Heather Glen to spend some time and see if they would blow over.
Heather Glen has a little gear driven race car track that is pretty unusual among playgrounds:
A three way slide gave us a chance to set up a race:
Which Henry won in a photo finish:
But then things got dark again so we stopped at the playground:
Yet another three way slide:
We started to head for home, but rode past the splash park to think about what to do. Turns out, you can't go near a splash park, with kids in swimsuits, and not actually stop. So we did:
Henry and Kate have really progressed in their ability to enjoy water since their swim lessons at the Dublin Rec this summer. They both got soaked:
Sam, not so much:
But they all had a great time:
We toweled the kids off, wrapped the twins in a dry towel and bundled them in the trailer, and beat the rain home to a nice warm bath!
Three down, 27 to go. More than halfway done!
