Sunny Saturdays are always good for monkeying around! 🙂
This was the closest I could find to the monkey bars of my childhood and it won’t be around much longer as funds are being raised to replace all the old equipment at this playground with one of the new configured play structures.
While I was at the park, a young boy ran over to me, intrigued by me and my camera. After I assured the mom I was not interested in photographing the children, we began talking about how much fun we used to have on stuff just like this. Her son was having a ball, climbing, hanging and swinging from the bars. In other words, acting like a complete monkey! 🙂
I have visited parks with newer equipment and I must say, I don’t see the same enthusiasm as I did in this little boy playing on those old, rusty metal bars.
Who says change is always for the best?
