An Ode to The Yards Park
Posted by Will on July 17, 2012
If you follow our Twitter or Facebook feeds, you might have noticed that as the days have grown ridiculously hotter (to almost unprecedented levels, even), we have frequented a particular park nestled just east of Nationals Park.
Over the past few months, The Yards Park has quickly grown to be one of our favorite spots in D.C. It also has helped that Nola has really taken to the water ever since her first pool experiences at Banneker and Upshur from last summer. Yards Park has a rather large canal for wading and fountain for running around in; in short, the perfect place to be on a hot summer day.
It has been really fascinating to watch our brave little girl make strides as she grew much more comfortable being in and around the water. These include sitting up to her neck in the canal, to transitioning to a doggy paddle position, and also running full bore through the 6 foot high plumes of refreshing water.
In the short amount of time we have been with Nola in D.C., our outings at Yards Park will be some I think I will remember and cherish the most. Having the opportunity to watch her enjoy just being a kid has been priceless.
Happy Birthday, America
