Water Works Park
Located on Fleur Drive directly across from Gray's lake, Water Works Park covers nearly 1,500 acres of open wooded areas. The park stretches from Fleur Drive west of 63rd Street, bounded by the Raccoon River on the north edge and George Flagg Parkway to the south.
Biking, jogging, picnicking, fishing, and hiking are a few of the activities that park patrons enjoy. Picnic areas, complete with tables and grills, are located in several areas of the park. Large, open areas are available for team sports such as softball, tag football, and soccer. For more information on bike trails go to www.ci.des-moines.ia.us/departments/PR/trails.htm
And while we're on the subject, Gray's Lake across from this park has paddle boats that they rent out for (I think) $5 an hour. Such a fun way to spend a Saturday (and get a good leg workout in - wow.)Thanks Jamie!

The little boy in the movie is the love of my life. I want to adopt him.
And Luke and I agree that we totally want a pet dragon someday.
If you've been wondering if you should see it, do it.
It was funny, it was sweet, it was touching, it was adorable.
Both kids sat through it with almost no problems and I loved it as much as they did.
(Kids under 2 are free, so it was $13.50 for our whole family. And if you go on Tuesday, you can get $1 popcorn and $1 drinks.)
Just thought you should know.
(*If your kids are scared of fire-breathing dragons, avoid at all costs.
Because believe it or not, "How to Train Your Dragon" has dragons in it!!
