 Are we ever to old to play?

Ever since my kids and nephews grew up, I have found myself missing the excuse of playing in ball pools, going on see saws, swings, slides & roundabouts. When I was young a lot of the kids play areas/equipment didn’t exist. If ever I am passing a kids play area and no one is around […]
