Did you happen to maybe notice my new tab ^^ up ^^ there ^^ on top ^^ titled 'Parks and Rec'? I've done a few park reviews on the blog and there are a TON of parks here in North Carolina so I decided to put them all under one nice convenient tab for you. My only regret is that I didn't do more reviews in Virginia, though I have been to quite a few parks in the Hampton Roads area, I'm sure I can look through all my pictures and do a few more reviews that I never got around to posting
...if I wasn't so lazy.
I digress, first park review for North Carolina shall be Creekside Park, located in Archdale. I'm not sure why we ended up at this park, I told Travis we wanted to go to the park and he drove us to this one. It's about 35 minutes away from us.
here it is!
This was a fairly nice park, it has baseball fields, a little gazebo, a rec center, a huge playground (which we didn't actually play on), some hilly trails (some paved, some not...), a disc golf course and all that other fun jazz, though it didn't have a bathroom that I could see close. Here are some pics from our trip!

We moved on to a non-paved trail that ran right along the side of the creek, which I thought was ridiculous because
1. Lexi was walking right along the edge
2. Travis is crazy allergic to Poison Ivy
Now, I'm no expert on the matter, I've never had Poison Ivy before, and I'm reallly not sure what it looks like but I think this is Poison Ivy.
Just so you know, I was bringing up the rear and took this picture after everyone nonchalantly walked right past this. I had to use my naggy voice and tell Travis to keep on the look out.

|Note to self: Never wear white shorts to park|
|Lexi was picking up rocks and throwing them into the water|
|Charlotte very proud of herself for climbing up there|
|Alexis was quite unimpressed!|
