Today was yet another Saturday that Mario had to work, so were we going to stay home and boo-hoo ourselves?
We had a lovely morning at the Gran Bosque Urbano (the Great Urban Woods). We only stumbled upon this park a year ago when friends invited us for a picnic. But in our defense, I didn't have much access to a car until a year ago, so our park options were limited to those within walking distance--the Alameda and Venustiano Carranza.
As much as we love the Alameda, the Gran Bosque Urbano has replaced it as our favorite park in Saltillo. Why? For me, it's all about the trees and grass. I'm still astonished by how many trees and how much healthy, luxurious grass is in that part--grass that we're allowed to sit on and walk in! (As opposed to the Alameda and far too many other Mexican parks.)
For the kids, it's all about the sandbox. Today, we didn't even venture out to the swings, slides or other play equipment. A solid two hours was spent in the sandbox.
If we ever get out of the sandbox.
