Heritage Park



Today we went to Heritage Park in Eagle. The kids call this place Eagle Pop Ups. We've been here before. There's lots of pop ups and we always bring red plastic cups to play with.

When we're done we like to get a snow cone from the snow shack on site. Just so you know who you're dealing with I have tried every snow cone flavor. What's my favorite? I don't have one, I have many. Lover's delight. Tiger's Blood, (which is actually strawberry colada, which is actually strawberry and coconut). I've made up some good combinations too. Peach and passion fruit. Strawberry and guava. What flavors are gross? Apple, cherry, cantaloupe. I could even make you one. Yes, I know how to operate the snow-making machine. If you haven't guessed it by now I worked at a snow shack in my teenage years. So now you know.

If you're looking for directions and more info, click on my link to parks in Eagle. Have fun at Heritage Park. And don't forget to treat yourself to a Tiger's Blood. Summer's going to be over before we know it. Get all that fun in now while you can.

do you know if they still have the "pop-ups" running once school starts? this looks like fun, and tigers blood is the only way to go. I think I will go make one today with our little machine at home, I have every flavor if you want to try your mixing skills again! ;)

Gina, I think they are on at least until Labor Day. Don't know for sure but that 's a good question. Anybody else know?

Hey Amanda,
It's been so fun catching up with your fam and all the fun activities. As far as flavors, I am a creature of habit...its has to be half tigers blood/half pink lemon sour every time! We are headed out now to get one because our local one closes today for the season. :(

Ang, Nice to have reconnected with you on FB. I'm going to have to try that combination of Tiger's Blood and Pink Lemon Sour. Sounds good.
