Five Favorites

Compared to our backyard in Texas, we have a tiny teeninsey backyard here in Holland. We are Texans through and through and I think it is just in our blood that we need wide open spaces. I am not complaining by any means. I promise. It takes Royce or our new lawn mower, Lance, all of 10 minutes to mow our backyard which leaves us more time for travel. We do have to get creative with outdoor play (buiten spelen) and find these big spaces where we all can really let loose and explore. Here in Holland, that is not a problem. We just have to find them all!  Sharing with you our five favorite FREE (gratis) places close by that gets our family outside on the weekends!

Beautiful outdoor park and play space for kids with small children’s farm with goats, peacocks, llamas, and homemade chocolate sand ice cream cones by me.
