Our first of many Punderbunny trips!

A nice place except for no playgrounds!  Easy getting here since they opened up I-480 this month!  After arriving the kids went nuts on their bikes.  Although there were kids here, without a playground there was no common meeting point.  Hence, we spent the day without friends.  No worry, Dad brought a bike, too.  once I got the tires pumped up we went for a LONG bike ride.  on the way back, after it started raining --- BOOM! --- the (rotted) tire exploded!  Oh well.  Next time I'll have new tires.  We took a long (three or four mile) walk, too, whew!  Rained (drizzled) quite a bit, made it muddy.  Now 8:30 PM, I am DEAD tired.  Playgrounds or no park!  At least until they are too old for the playground!  Really a good time for this park - Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon.  Couldn't get Friday off because of sick leave and then the guy came back (Bert).

Anyway - sleep at 9 pm, up at 8 AM - Bike ride and walk.  Meg complaining about not making a friend.  She needs a playground.  They are bored.  We had fun, though.  Ready to leave at 1348, to the dump!  Started home sort of early, the kids are kind of bored.  A nice trip for older kids.
