NCMA Park Pig

Afternoon at NCMA Park

March 18, 2017 Sarah Coggins

Winter decided to revisit us and brought bitter cold temperatures back for most of the week. Yesterday afternoon, finally, the sun was shining, the wind not so strong, and the temperature climbed into the upper 50s. We needed out. So my daughter & I headed to the NCMA Park to explore and see it’s newest installation – a large pig structure intended for children to climb in and enjoy.

We had fun checking out this bright white & orange pig. Her climbing in and sliding down. Me watching and cheering.

We spent time wandering along the paths exploring some of the other sculptures in the park. She was in awe of the “big circles.”

She found flowers for me in one of the grassy fields.

NCMA Park: Dandelions

I taught her how to blow dandelion seeds.

We took a moment to try out one of the benches and take a quick selfie.

The rocks on the path to the car caught her eye and required attention. She was very specific in her search as she filled her hand with her treasures. (We did leave them behind.)

This hour spent at the park was one of the highlights of my week. Filled with simple enjoyment and time together.

Linking up with Mommy & Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious? and Photo Friday at Pierced Wonderings.

I highly recommend the book What Was Lost: A Christian Journey through Miscarriage for any woman of faith who has suffered a miscarriage or anyone wanting to gain insight to help comfort a spouse, friend, sister, daughter, etc.
