Batman Park

My daughter Jessica, is in the USAF and stationed at Ellsworth AFB near Rapid City, SD. Rocky is one of the guys from her unit that spent 5 months in Iraq with her, and one of her very best friends. She and Rocky love to pretend they are tourists once in a while, and go to all the local attractions in the Black Hills area, like Reptile Gardens, Bear Country, The Roo Ranch, Mt. Rushmore, Dinosaur Park, Crazy Horse etc. Last Friday, my grandson, CJ called me on the phone and said he was going to the park "to-mar" with Mama and Rocky. Jess asked him, "Which park are we going to ?" To which CJ replied, "Batman Park". Apparently, "Badlands" and "Batman" sound very much alike to some 3 1/2 year old boys.

Here are a few pictures they took there. It looks like they had a great time, and saw some beautiful scenery. Jess had these posted on her MySpace in an album called: The Goodlands.

I talked to them again on Sunday and asked if CJ had been looking for Batman there. Jessica said he was a little disappointed that Batman was not there, and also kept asking where the slide was. CJ loves slides, and expects to see one when he goes to a "park". I don't suppose they found any swings or monkey bars there either. Here is a picture of the four of them: Rocky, holding "Bart" and Jess holding CJ. Maybe next weekend they'll tour Spiderman Park???
