WW: The Simple Pleasures of Life

by

Couple of weeks ago, we visited Cubbon Park. This park holds fond memories for me. I used to work in an office very close to this park, and would often go there for an evening stroll. It’s one of the most peaceful places in Bangalore (even if it is right in the heart of the city).

Cubbon Park is also well known for its Bal Bhavan – a children’s park and a toy train. When Snubnose was a toddler, I took her a couple of times for a ride in the toy train only to be disappointed both times because the train was under repairs.

This time though we got lucky having a fantastic Sunday morning at the park, and also getting to enjoy the train ride.

That's me and Snubnose walking into the park.

Trying to feed Piglet his snack through the bars of the slide not entirely unsuccessfully. Noodles and cake always makes Piglet happy

Fun on the slides

It’s very rare that we have photos of just the two of us together so we plonked Piglet on to Snubnose and got a hurried snap taken. Not easy when the train is in motion, and the photographer had to jog alongside the train to take the shot!

Yup. You can see that we really enjoyed the toy train ride

I don’t know about the kids but K and I looked super-thrilled in the photo!

    Ah, going to the park is a forgotten simple pleasure. We need more of these instead of malls.

      @veens:disqus Thanks :), we would visit Cubbon Park a lot more often if it was closer. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy the Bangalore weather.
