Balboa Park and the Hipster Hippopotamus
That's him. The Hipster Hippopotamus. He was charming. Everything you'd want in a hippo, really. He was a part of just one of the playgrounds at Balboa Park.
We didn't spend a lot of time exploring the park. We drove around, we saw the epic awesomeness it including the zoo, the natural history museum, a ton of playgrounds, a puppet theatre, an air and space museum, hiking and cycling trails - the list goes on... and then we settled on one playground, and stayed there for a few hours.
Unfortunately, Maeryn was getting sick again.
It was a different kind of sickness this time - runny nose, cough - we figured it was just a bit of a cold.
And we played.
Both kids made friends and hung out with them the entire time.
Michael and I got some much-needed Mom and Dad talking time.
And we went home.
Maeryn was coughing a lot - and it wasn't cool to have her around all those other kids feeling so bad.
I hoped it wouldn't be as drawn out as last time.
She'd only been completely well for about a week.
