The Great Outdoors

I think I can officially say that Springtime has arrived in Clermont-ferrand.  It was an absolutely perfect Saturday and we took full advantage!  It was so nice outside that we were even able to wear short sleeves (it has been a long time since I've been able to do that in April)!

After a great breakfast outside we wanted to take full advantage of the great outdoors.  After some much needed shopping (isn't all shopping much needed) we wanted to take Nathan to a park to run around and explore (and hopefully tire himself out).

The problem is that when the sun is shining everyone goes out to the parks and they become so overcrowded.  This isn't the ideal when you have a toddler that wants to explore and climb on everything.  Cornel had mentioned that there was a park he had noticed just up from our house so we decided to go and check it out.

From the outside this park isn't much to see.  It actually looks rather small and run down from the street.  Once you cross the gates, however, it's a while different story.  It had amazing views of the city, a large pond with gold fish {which Nathan loved} and wide open green perfect for running around.

An amazing gem hidden in Clermont-Ferrand.  Hopefully we'll be making a return trip soon.

Fun! I am jealous of the green grass, our snow just melted last week so ours is all brown and matted to the ground - yuck!
