My mom took Natalie, Philip and Melody to Liberty Park about a week ago. There is a wading pool/lake area and old carnival rides and a lot of space to run around. Natalie was in heaven! She went on every ride twice and my mom says they basically dragged her away because she did NOT want to leave. My mom took 60 photos and 2 videos, here is a small sample.

First time in the airplane
Second time, this time in the yellow plane
First ride on the merry go round

Can you tell from her face that the water isn't that warm?
Cold or not, she loved it!
She had so much fun that Phil and I took her back a few days later. She remembered every ride, telling us what car and plane she had already been in and then requested to go on every ride twice. After the rides, we ate some cheese fries and got her some "candy" (fruit snacks). After the rides, we went over to the water and played for a while and then decided to get home for lunch and nap time. Natalie and Philip were both sound asleep before we got out of the parking lot. Unfortunately we forgot our camera, so there is no photographic evidence of all the fun we had.
Funny fact, or photo, below is a shot of Natalie on her one-year-birthday trip wearing the same suit she is wearing in the photos above. Keep in mind she is two-and-a-half now. Skinny minny
