H-berg's Neckarwiesen Park

(Have I mentioned that European kids strip down when it's hot warm outside. Well they do. My kids can't help but gawk. We're working on it. By the way, I'm referring to young kids...under 5.)
Some friends got together on Wednesday at a park downtown. This wasn't just any park, it was located on the bank of the Neckar River, and the playground was so, so......European.

I really wanted to try this one, but couldn't find anyone to evenly distribute my weight:(
Theo heading for the snort. (we've been reading a lot of "Are you my mother?" by Dr. Suess lately.
The snort was spreading cow "fertilizer". We turned right back around.

There was this water feature that the kids turned into some kind of factory, they all had very important jobs to do. The playground equipment kept the kids interested and busy.
I, of course, was on Theo patrol. 
He was in heaven. 
Except with swings. He HATES the swings.
But loved throwing sticks in the river.
I really didn't see much of the kids for the next 2 hours, except for the occasional snack request. They stayed busy exploring and "working" the whole time.

He's such a good big brother.

A giant wooden rattlesnake that rotates.

Theo ran his car allllll the way to the end of the fence.
The castle.
Then we fed the geese. When Ty started chasing them violently and Ryli stepped barefoot in fresh goose poop we decided to pack it up.
 We are big fans of the Neckarwiesen. We'll be back with dad....and swimsuits.
