We met up at Moss Park, which is a bit of a drive for us. I was also slightly unprepared for the tolls, and I didn't know that there was a fee to get in to the park, so we had to turn around and find an ATM. Side-rant: there are a LOT of toll roads down here, and a significant portion of them are ONLY exact coins. So even if you have a $20, if you don't have three quarters, you're out of luck. It's really annoying, but now I have a transponder, so going new places shouldn't be as stressful.
Anyway. When we got to the park, there was only one other family there with a couple of youngish boys (7 and 5 maybe?). The mom was super nice and showed us around, warning us to watch out for spider webs (Google 'banana spiders' - ugh!). There were huge dirt piles at the parking area - dump trucks kept coming and unloading while we were there, too - and the kids had a lot of fun climbing the smaller ones. We were a little nervous about this one expansive 'complex' of dirt mounds that were really high and had been obviously built upon over and over - we thought there was a risk of it collapsing, so we stuck to a single mound that seemed more stable.
Fiona and Niall had fun playing on the dirt mound and exploring the brush, but Colwyn and Lachlann got a little bored - probably because I think this group skews young. But they did have fun catching lizards!
We had a good time, but I'm not sure how long we'll last with this group. I think there may be some issues that might get annoying over time (stories for another post!), but we'll see.
