Tobaru Koen Park


I love the parks in Okinawa.  The toys are awesome.  Seriously, who gets to ride a weenie dog at the park??  That is just one of the many things that have made me giggle.  I LOVE IT!  I had read in a magazine about some great parks near the base, and we ventured off to find this park.  There were a couple reasons we wanted to go to this particular park.  First, we love roller-slides, and this park has an even BIGGER one than the park we often frequent.  Second, Brian has never ridden on a roller- slide.  Believe it or not, the weenie dog toy was just an added bonus!  We had a wonderful time, ran off lots of energy, and enjoyed this beautiful woodsy park. We also got some fun footage of us going down the slides.  Just make sure you ride down on something, or your pants might catch fire!!

    That is AWESOME! I am laughing so hard! I love Nathan’s giggles – I love your dirty bum – I love you guys! That looks so fun! It definitely reminds me of a little alpine slide adventure we had a few years ago. 🙂

    Okay, that looks fun! I’m going to have to show my girls, they will want to go ride it!

    What a blast! Kennedy’s squeals made Malia smile. We can’t get over how grown up Nathan is! Makayla was very impressed that Kennedy went down alone. Definitely some cool playgrounds!

    Well, I’m bummed!! For some reason the video isn’t showing up on my tortoise computer! That does look like a fun and beautiful park! In fact, if it weren’t for that typhoon you had, I’d say you live in paradise!

    Now that was AWESOME! That looks like a blast. I want to try it. ( with cushions at the end of the slide.) I want to know if Brian flew down that slide too. It was great to see the kids in action. Love those kids!!

    We got a new computer and first thing I did was come to see your video! That looked soooo fun! The boys loved it and want to come play at your park! You go, Natalie!

    That looks like way too much fun! It sounds like you all are staying very busy enjoying all the new sights and activities. It’s been ages since I’ve talked to you, Nat! I keeping meaning to call you on Friday evenings, but I space it and then it’s hard to find a good time after that. I sure miss all of you! I’m glad to hear that you had a nice birthday. I don’t know if you got my g-mail message, but happy late birthday:) We need a good chat so I’ll be calling you! Love you all!
