“This is my favorite playground in Michigan,” declared Button.
[Hmmm. As Button has never visited a park in any other state, her declaration is even more momentous!]
Three exciting levels of climbing, hanging, and sliding fun. Just ignore those porta-potties that snuck (is that a word????) into the picture. Those are NOT part of the fun. I’m simply too lazy to crop them out.
