by Wendy Copley on September 16, 2010

It’s all Iowa this week, folks!

July 16, 2010: Wyatt and Grandpa check out a 3D game on the Lego website. My dad is a 3D aficionado — he takes 3D photographs and has even invented a stereoview format — so he has boxes of 3D glasses laying around the house.

July 17, 2010: Eating s’mores on the back patio wit the cousins and Grandpa.

July 18, 2010: Grandma and Augie check out Calvin and Hobbes together.

July 21, 2010: The boys play in my grandma’s enormous backyard with my Aunt Linda. This is the back 1/3 of her yard! Not a California yard, that’s for sure.

July 22, 2010: Playing at the playground in the park I grew up in. When I was a kid, there was a (real) old firetruck in the park for kids to climb on. It was apparently ruled too dangerous at some point after I left home and they replaced it with this vaguely firetruck shaped play structure.

  • Yay for Iowa!
    I enjoy your blog, your photographs, your sense of humor.
    Thanks for the bento inspiration, too!

    The park in our neighborhood in Greenville, Mississippi had a real airplane!! And you could climb all over it, sit in one of the two seats, lay on the wings, etc…. It was too cool. No wonder you are such a neat person, your folks are great! 3D glasses beat bifocals any day!!

    Bever Park is just not the same without the fire truck. 🙁 How dangerous could it be? We all lived through it! And that new play structure is just sort of sad in comparison.

    Iove the picture of the kids eating s’mores! My almost four year eats hers raw just like Augie is!

  • Can I go to Iowa with you sometime? Looks super nice.

  • Nancy — The new structure is completely pathetic! I really can’t figure out what was wrong with that firetruck. Did it get rusty or something, maybe? Even if it did, why didn’t they put a new firetruck in? That was what made Bever the best freaking park in all of CR!
    Honestly, I can’t figure out why people are so hell-bent on eliminating fun playgrounds.I’m surprised children aren’t required to don helmets and padded suits before they climb on something any more.
