Entertaining the “Boys”

You know, sometimes life gets a little too heavy on us and it’s good to find a way to relieve stress.  That’s not always easy to do in a huge city like Tokyo, but one Monday recently, we went to Kodomo No Kuni – Children’s Land.

 

We labeled the park with our mantra.

It was a kinda hot day so we didn’t feel energetic.  We walked around and saw lots of children enjoying the slides and play equipment.

After lunch we decided to ride the train to tour around the park, kinda get the lay of the land so we would know where to go play.  We tried one train, but it was too small.

We found some areas that looked like fun, but we needed to conquer the obstacle course before we could try them.

We kept trying to find the bicycles to ride and finally did although by then it was nearly closing time and they wouldn’t let us ride them.  So we rode the amphibious cars, and Judy crashed into me.

Look at her evil grin.  She's getting ready to do it.

These little cars were really fun, even in the water.  It’s probably a good thing that the course was so short.  We could really have gotten into trouble if we had a longer ride.
