We took the kids to Wheaton Regional Park which is one of the most diverse in Montgomery county as far as things to do. Unfortunately, we discovered that the entire playground has been taken away and will be replaced with what looks like a pretty cool park.
One of the other things there is a train that takes people on a slow ramble through the woods. Since the train is down for the Winter I suggested we walk the rails “Oh Brother Where Art Thou” style (though I didn’t tell anyone that) and we had a slow and great time on a beautiful day with no one around. Everyone had a blast.
One thing the kids discovered were these randomly placed gnomes and other guardian figures along the way. Here are the ones we found.
With thanks to Liam for the steady hands.
