About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

Magical Bridge Playground
Uploaded: Apr 20, 2015
What better way to start off the week than by checking out a brand new playground. Our son and his friends had a great time exploring the new Magical Bridge Playground
Although there were many kids running around, the park easily accommodated the crowd. However, I bet I wasn't the only parent wishing I had dressed my son in a brighter color so I could more easily see when he dashed off from one play area to the next. As with any new play space, it will take a little while for me to get used to this park's unique blind spots.
I'm so used to bringing a bag of toys with us to the park. It was a wonderful change of pace to leave our toys at home and instead focus on discovering what this innovative and inclusive park has to offer - especially all of the different equipment
for kids to spin, swing, sway and slide. We stayed for about two hours and still didn't play with everything!
The slides were clearly a favorite place for many children. And, although it wasn't packed with kids, I enjoyed the park's unique laser harp. We'll definitely be adding the Magical Bridge Playground into our park rotation.
Did you check out the new Magical Bridge Playground yet? What did you think?
What is it worth to you?
