A morning at Ellis Park

Now that the arrow thinks he's quite the accomplished walker, discovering new playgrounds wherever we go has been a lot of fun for our family. This weekend, we visited my sister's family and got to explore a new-to-us park that is her family's favorite. I wrote about the Playscape playground at Danville, Indiana's Ellis Park at the Indiana Insider for Visit Indiana this week.

While the playground is wonderful, my greatest joy was watching my arrow and his cousin arrows play together. We hadn't visited them in more than a month, and it was really heartwarming to see them make memories together.

Wanna go for a ride, Mom?

My niece was a little too young to keep up with the boys on the playground.
But I couldn't pass up an opportunity to show off this sweet face!
If You Visit:
Ellis Park
600 E. Main Street, Danville, Indiana
Free admission.
Insider Tip: Pack a swimsuit if you visit in the summer. The park has a nice pool, complete with a few waterslides. In December, the park has a great Christmas lights display.

This post is a part of You Capture at I Should Be Folding Laundry. The theme this week is Youth.


  1. So sweet...the the last pic is precious, her eyes are gorgeous!

  2. Awww - what cute shots. Gotta love a new park to discover :D

  3. An adorable set of shots chica. And those eyes on your niece. So sweet!


    Nice blog, I look forward to coming back.

  4. Nice shots! That looks like a fun park!

  5. That looks like a fun park! Adorable kids too!

  6. Wow, we were just at an identical park in Melbourne! I wonder if they stole the design from Ellis.

  7. I've been to this park many times- the best part is how safe it is- completely fenced in with one entrance. The kids love exploring all of the levels! Beautiful children!

  8. I grew up in this park, playing softball, swimming in the pool and walking the trails. Now that I'm older, I spend much of my "free" time with my kiddos there, playing on Playscape, watching baseball games and playing in the pool. It's a great park in an even greater town. I heart Danville. :-)

  9. PS LOVE the photos. Cutie-pie kiddos!
