Played Soccer with my Family at Jefferson Park

Today we were supposed to meet some friends at Jefferson Park for a picnic.  I’d never been to Jefferson Park, which is on Beacon Hill and pretty far from our neighborhood.  When we got there, I couldn’t believe what a beautiful park it was.  There was a skateboard park, two playgrounds (with two zip-lines!), really beautiful landscaping, and the most incredible views of the city and sound.  Awesome!

But our friends never showed up.  I guess we had a little miscommunication, but no big deal, the four of us would just have to have some fun on our own.  And we did.  We took our jackets off and made make-shift goals with them.  Then we played two-on-two soccer – for hours.  We had so much fun!  We played girls against the boys, adults against the kids, etc.  It was an great workout, and I think it was a great way for the kids to work on their soccer skills.  I never played soccer as a kid (or an adult) and I think I would have really loved the sport.  Oh well…
