A Fun Sunday Afternoon

This past Sunday we decided to have some fun since the sun was out and it wasn't too cold.  We decided on trying out a new park, Gwen Thompson Briar Patch Park (21660 Sterling Blvd., Sterling, VA 20164).  We were not disappointed and Michael really enjoyed himself.
We had made hotdogs for dinner the night before so we packed up all that we needed to have hotdogs for lunch at the park.  Filled up our Brita water bottles with water to drink and we were set.
We really liked this park.  They have two play areas that are just for 2 - 5 year olds.  One is actually fenced in, which I love.  The one thing that we were annoyed with is that parents would leave the gate wide open to let kids just run out.  I think that kind of defeated the purpose of it being fenced in.
As well as the two toddler areas, there were two other play sets, and two swing sets.  While we were there, an ice cream truck stopped.  I looked at what they had to offer.  More than just ice cream!  They had hotdogs and soda available.  Didn't really look too hard to see about price because we didn't really have the money for anything and had brought our own food.  There were some picnic tables, but they were already being used by people with the same idea as us.

Here's some video that I took while we were having some fun.

We do this every so often.  Most of the time we pick up hotdogs and drinks from Sheetz or pick up a pizza from Little Caesars.  I love that we live in an area that has so many different types of parks to take Michael to.  What do you do to have some family fun on the cheap?
