There are several parks close to where we live but if you ask my kids if they have a preference, they will almost always choose the quiet, unknown to many, park, very close to our local airport.
Beautifully shaded with aged trees, the highlight of playing at this park is being able to watch flights take off and land several hundred feet away. (Every little boy’s dream come true!)
Comfort in Play with Gymboree’s Hop ‘n’ Roll Collection
Even though the said park is quite a drive from our home, we find joy in going all the way there just to watch our kids run with abandon through the park. We’ve learnt the best times to have the park to ourselves is always early Saturday morning or late Sunday evening. The kids, of course, think it’s really cool to hog a swing for as long as they want when they’re the only ones at the park.
This even means being able to take a short cat-nap on one!

Watching our kids run and play is such a wonderful reminder of how beautiful one’s childhood is.
As my 9 year old daughter kicks her legs to gain momentum as she swings, I silently wish she could be my little 4 year old once again.

Our kids grow way too fast and as parents it’s so important we encourage them to make the most of their childhood…
make the most of their time outdoors.
Exploring for bugs hidden in the crevices of a tree,
The beauty of play is truly, such a necessity.
And yes, Gymboree continues to encourage that through their clothes.
When I think of shopping for my kids from their racks I do so knowing I pick pieces that provide comfort and durability through their many moments of play.
The Hop ‘N’ Roll Collection doesn’t just provide our kids with quality clothes that are comfortable and trendy but with every purchase of a Hop ‘N’ Roll piece, in-store and online, a percentage of the sales will go towards supporting KaBOOM.
Gymboree is partnering with KaBOOM! – a national non-profit organization that works to ensure that all kids have a childhood filled with active play, especially those in underserved communities. From 4/6 – 5/31,Gymboree will be supporting KaBOOM! through a series of programs and activities, with the goal of raising enough money to build a place to play for 10,000 deserving kids in 2015.
All kids thrive on play and with an initiative like this, more deposits will be made in the lives of so many more kids. Such a blessing!
