Madge and I attended a Birthday party for two of our grandsons. The party was at a park in Mount Vernon, MO. which is located behind the Mount Vernon Golf Course on highway 174 North and East of town.
I have been to the golf course a couple of times, knew where it was, and how to get there; but never knew there was a public park behind it. You even need to drive through the golf course parking lot to get to the park. Odd? I never saw that done before.
You can even play frisbe golf in the park.
Our grandsons Josiah and Eli had a great time. It was wonderful being there even with the heat. Josiah will turn 11 on August 1, and Eli turned 6 on June 30. I think it is a great use of resources to combine two birthdays together to celebrate their years of life.
I am glad that I had a part, even if it was just being present. I even got to push Eli in the swings. “Higher, Higher” he would say. After he would get so high he got nervous about it he would say, “Stop pushing now”, or just “Stop”. Funny.
It was great to get back home, though it was around 10 p.m. I took a shower and went to bed. The morning was wonderful. The day is too.
