Florida Part 2 - Toddler Park, Lake Mirror, and Hollis Garden

If there's one thing Lakeland knows how to do well, it is parks! There is a new toddler park downtown by Lake Mirror...Fischer spent the night with Auntie and then headed up there to play the next morning. I met them there to take pics and have lunch. Here are some highlights:

Peeking at Auntie on the Sailboat-climbing thing.

Digging in the sand pit.

And getting a little help b/c it's really hard!

I love this climbing gym/'s so cute!

A random duck to climb on (they also had a dinosaur and turtle).

Playing some "mus-kit" (music).

This is Lake Mirror, with downtown Lakeland can probably tell how it got it's name. The bridge-looking thing on the far side is called the Promenade (it used to have a room underneath for events, kind-of like a theater)...right on top of that is where Dustin proposed to me, close to Christmas time, at night with all the downtown Christmas lights reflecting on the lake one night.

Heading into the gardens.

Smelling the flowers.

I can do it myself Auntie!


Checking out the pond and waterfall.
