The travel potty is the biggest life saver considering as soon as we got to the lake two of the kids needed to go potty. You can’t let something like potty accidents ruin a trip. Madeleine was entertained by her snacks and drink. Afterwards I cleaned up the kiddos’ hands with my favorite wipes so they, too, could grab some snacks.
The water is a bit warmer in the lake. It also has a great view of the city skyline from the water. The kids love seeing the little planes take off on tours- they feel like they are swimming with the planes. There is a grassy area surrounding the lake where people can sit and enjoy the views. There are also small rocks on the shore that kids love to skip and babies love to eat… Also, Warning- lots of geese poop.
We love coming here because while we are in the city, we can still enjoy nature. A few blocks away is my husband’s office and there are several restaurants and stores to visit downtown. Are there any hidden gems in your city?
