One of my favorite things is watching Jojo watch the airplanes. Seriously, genuine joy and excitement just ooze from this kid every time he sees an airplane.
Today was my last Jojo Thursday so we took a special picnic to one of his favorite spots. We made some peanut butter sandwiches, cut up some strawberries and went on our way! But first, we made a quick pit stop at my favorite little coffee shop to grab an iced almond milk latte. Yum!
When we got to Clutter’s Park there were plenty of open tables but we opted for a bench so that Jojo would have more space to stand and walk on.
For about two hours we sat and watched. Every plane that landed was greeted with a very excited “OH!” The other park goers were really getting a kick out of his enthusiasm. Littleman was there too but he was a silent onlooker during our picnic time. I’d like to think that he was taking it all in 😉
I absolutely love this little spot. There are people taking photos, people just simply watching, people playing chess on the chess tables. It’s small and quaint and tucked away in the beautiful city of El Segundo. People there are just so darn friendly. It’s perfect for a little picnic or a quiet moment to yourself. My only draw back is that if your kid isn’t super into planes you might lose their interest quickly. There isn’t a play structure or much roaming room. But Rec Park is nearby so you could easily pack it up and head there.
Overall I would totally recommend checking out this little park! Let me know what places you love to take your littles and why in the comments below!
