Park in the “Ped Mall”

I’m so cool…I learned a new term…..Ped Mall as in Pedestrian Mall.  I kept calling it a square, so did Henry.  We could not figure out why everyone looked at us like we had two heads each.  Now we know.  It is not a square; it’s a Ped Mall.  Anyway, the whole point of this is to post some pictures of my favorite part of the Mall.  The best part is that it is so  kid friendly.  The library is right there.  It rocks and has a great kids section.  The playground is there and a water fountain is there.  This is like mom and kid heaven.  We usually walk to the Mall.  Actually, I walk and the girls bike.  They play, we eat, maybe go to story time and then come back.  By the time we have done all that the girls have gotten all of their wiggles out and are just worn out.  Of course, I am too, but it is worth it for us to get some exercise and spend some good time together.  Wow…this life is a little different than in TN.

  1. I’m sorry, if I had heard you refer to it that way I probably would have corrected you. But it’s not “the mall” either – that’s out in Coralville. That entire bricked couple-of-blocks area is referred to as the Pedmall.

    P.S. I have some outgrown winter-weight tights to offer if you’re interested.
