We walk to the park at least 5 times a week. The last few times we’ve been I noticed how trashy the sidewalks the playground area are looking. Drew actually noticed it too and suggested that next time we bring trash bags and clean it up. We did this last year so he must have remembered. He is an elephant, he never forgets!
True to his word, the next time we saddled up Drew was armed with trash bags. I’m weird and made them wear gloves, although I think they thought the gloves were pretty cool…
It took some convincing to get Brinley to join in on the fun. As soon as we got started she was game. Really, she just wants to do anything heÂ does.
We did the neighborhood a favor and got rid of this sad little dog, don’t let his beady eyes fool you! He’s been hanging around the playground for weeks harboring who knows what kind of nastiness. blech!
Brinley in her fancy pink pearls had a hard time maneuvering her enormous glove.
Who says picking up trash can’t be fun?
This was Drew’s favorite find…
And THATS why they had to wear gloves. ew.Â Some things should NOT be found at a park! ew again!
And finally,Â ditching the trash & glovesÂ so we can go play at our nice clean park!
I’m glad that Drew initiated the idea. I am proud of him for wanting to serve the community and making the the park a prettier (and cleaner!) place to hang out.
