Barnes Park | Adventurin' | Kaysville

Being a mom makes me pay a lot more attention to parks these days. Aiko can point out a slide from a mile away, especially if it's a purple slide. So when they said "Barnes Park" I knew I had heard that name from somewhere. 

It was until we drove over the overpass that I realized that this was the same park that I had first "blown my knee out" playing the beloved sport of soccer. Luckily, I suffer no negative feelings towards the park itself, since it did happen on the soccer fields and not the playground. 

The park has plenty of green grass, ducks, mud puddles, toddler size playgrounds and lots of shade. 

Once the kids saw the ducks, there was no turning around. 

Now, in my defense, I did not know that you shouldn't feed bread to ducks, because, I mean, I ALWAYS have. It wasn't until last week (but after this park visit) that I read a sign that bread was bad for ducks. 

So don't bring bread. Bring seeds or oats. I'm actually thinking that I need to put together a duck feeding post, since bread is not good for them. 

Be sure not to let the littlest people get too close to the geese either, they seemed ready to eat their little fingers. 

Remember the mud puddles? Well around each tree was some puddles. After the kids played in the mud, we found a water spout on the drinking fountain to wash the feet, shoes and muddy legs off. 

It's the perfect park to add to your list!

Oh, check out this website too! It's called Utah is Rad. This isn't a sponsored post either, Harmony just truly loved this hat and shirt. She bought shirts for everyone in the family. Because. Utah. Is. Rad.
