With it's fence and shade last weeks final park destination was a hit! Let's try it again.

The park is the Indian Creek Greenway and Trailhead - address 101 Town Hall Drive. That part of the road is new (last 2 years) so it doesn't show up on my car's GPS. The parks official site is Indian Creek Greenway and Trailhead Google maps it here.

If it rains I'm happy to host at my house in Cary. I'll PM everyone who's coming my address if it looks like we'll be inside.

I plan on being there either way. Last week, I planned on being there, but my cousin had car trouble and I had to drive her to a job interview. Assuming nothing like that comes up again, I will be there- whether at the park or at your house (your house is so close to mine- that would be easy! hehe).

Ditto April. You live like 2 seconds from me. Infact I can swing by and "pick" you up after I drop G off to school, you're right by there. You can caravan with MommyKrista and I.

That's ours--thanks for retrieving it! It was the second week in a row that I've left something in the park after playdate. Goal for this week: leave with everything we brought in.

Thank you for the offers to caravan! I just might do that and follow one of you that live close to me.

Sadly, I have no sense of direction at all. I could almost get lost trying to go from my bedroom to my kitchen.

My mom used to say that I could get lost in a wet paper bag. And that I'd argue with a stop sign, but that's a different issue.

We're in. Loved that park last week, even if I couldn't get my little explorer away from the big kid slides.

I wish we didn't live so far away. We're out again this week, can't do an hour drive. I'll keep an eye out for when there's a playdate within a 30min drive for us and I'll see ya'll then!! :-)

So, rain is looking very likely. Should we cancel, or wait and make the call about what to do in the morning? Do we have any backup plans? Obxbound, you offered in the original thread to host in case of rain, but will we all fit comfortably at your house, or should we split into smaller groups at a couple of locations?

We did it in one day (from NY) when we moved here. It wasn't as bad as we thought. We left around 9am-ish. I think we ended up making 2 stops. When we got hungry. And the kid took a nap in the middle of the drive.

Mmmmmmm, those blueberry muffins!

I've never seen Rosti so peaceful and content for such a long period of time when out. Your house must have good Feng Shui.
