Did you know that the National Park Service was created in 1916? They’ve given us a century of wide open spaces and incredibly breathtaking natural beauty. Many families enjoy these open outdoors daily because it’s a free public space where can relax and it’s usually not too far from home.
Upon arrival to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, we stopped by The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory to get our free scoop of ice cream. It was an ice cream social like never before. I’ve never been there, but I LOVE Ice cream. Gabby got a Vanilla treat while I kept it within the theme with the Birthday Cake flavor. It was so incredibly yummy!
Afterwards we stopped by a few tables that some park rangers had set up with different activities for the kids and families. Gabby had fun creating Sand art necklaces with one of her #BloggerKid friends!
I actually caught a really great picture in which a Park Ranger posed in the background! It was a great shot.
After the activities, it was time to dance with Ramblin’ Dan and the Free Wheelin’ Band! It’s was a real live party. Kids and adults of all ages got up and danced their hearts out to the fine tunes. Jumping up and down the hills and not caring who sees. That’s the liveness that Ramblin’ Dan brings. Did I mention he’s available for your kid’s next Birthday party?
It was an amazing day to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th birthday. Did you know that there are over 400 National parks? It’s amazing! We’ve visited quite a few, but we’ve got a LONG way to go. I encourage you and your family to truly make it a mission to visit these national parks and support the national park foundation.
