Fun at Overlook Park, Saturday, October 16, 2010

I'm guessing the little girl standing in front of the clown is the birthday girl.

In seconds, the clown stood up on the board, balancing on the pipe, then flicked the stick upward causing the plate to fly up, then she caught it in the same hand that held the stick. The kids loved it!

Something the clown said to the party-goers got them off and running. The little girl in the lead on the left, the one that I think is the birthday girl, I think I've got it right because she's got on a petticoat that I'll bet the clown brought for her to wear during the party.

I took a couple of photos of this dad spinning these girls, watching how he threw his hands off the pipe, hoping to catch the action. I did!

As I decided to walk back to Interstate Avenue to wait for the MAX Yellow Line, I noticed a line of bicyclists coming across the park from my right to my left. I waited for them to cross and got this photo. What better place to stop for what turned out to be a short rest, especially on sunny, blue-sky day!

What a nice series of photos.

Given how cold and snowy it has been in many places shown in these blogs, it was fun to go back a bit to see your park photos from when the weather was warmer.

Hi Lynette! What a great series...you could write a book about that birthday party and the clown...wait, I think you did just that!

And the bikers...you caught them perfectly. Looks like beautiful weather.

I wonder how many parks have the name "Overlook"? :-)
