Nelson's Arianna Adams (right) took her fourth birthday present

Life-affirming moments at Lakeside Park

Nelson families were enjoying a strangely warm February afternoon last Tuesday.

February sunshine drew families to Lakeside Park this week, where Amani Keczan threw pebbles into the surf and hung out with his friend Ronia Birkel.

Emma Hawkins went for a bike ride while her father Tyler looked on, and Anthony Vandernborn took his nine-months pregnant wife Easton and their two-year-old daughter Remy-Lou for a leisurely stroll along the train tracks, stopping periodically to lift her giggling into the air.

Meanwhile, Nelson’s Arianna Adams took her fourth birthday present, a mini-car, for a drive around the playground with her friend Stella Muldoon.
