This past Sunday, AJ and I ventured over to this park in Denver called Wash Park. It's about 30 minutes north or so and I have only been once- in the early spring and to run. This time, I took AJ and we had a blast! We brought a loaf of bread so we could feed the ducks and packed a lunch. On the way there, I thought about renting a pedal boat for us, but I wasn't sure how he would do. Really, I wasn't sure how either of us would do. I'd never done it alone, and never done it with a 2 year old. Would he fall out?? Would he freak out?? Would he like it?? Would it be a total waste?? I decided when we got there, that it would be a lot of fun- and it was pretty inexpensive, so we'd give it a try. We each put on our life jackets and climbed in and went for about a 35 minute boat ride. That was as much as he could handle, because he was hot and wanted the jacket off.
The whole day was a lot of fun for both of us. He fed the ducks (I thought for sure he was going to fall into the water), played on the great playground, and I enjoyed taking him on his first pedal boat ride. Here are some pics:
Watching the ducks- he did feed them, but I was too afraid he would fall in the water to get a good pic of it.

I don't know what was so funny- but he's damn cute!
Should have had someone take a pic when we left the dock, not when we were coming back...
