So if you have read the blog for a long time you would remember that J's grand father was the mayor of a small town in St. Louis area for years. The town named the park after him. I never met the man, he had died long before I met J. Our kids love stopping by this place each visit. They call it their park and while we don't own the park in anyway it is such a rush to see your family name on all the signs in the park.
