I’m a big fan of comedy.  Love it, and would be a comedy groupie if I didn’t choose the whole parenthood life.  (No regrets!) So I have seen many episodes of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”, one of my guilty pleasures, featuring comedians being interviewed by one of my faves, Jerry Seinfeld.  Well I had to skip forward to the President Obama one, and it was a great episode.  Then I had to pause.

There’s a playground at the White House.

Nice car, but check out the playground!

When did this happen?

It has been there for more than 6 years???

How did I miss this?

Well it was March 2009, right at the time my daughter was born, so I may have been distracted. Below is the screen cap and link to video of the news report from Today.

Anyway, I had to share this playground spotting with my audience, even though it’s old news.

A few fun facts:

  • Malia and Sasha were 10 & 7 when they were surprised with this Rainbow Play Systems Structure (from South Dakota)
  • The 100 percent cedar and North American Redwood structure has four swings, including a tire swing, a slide, a fort, a climbing wall and climbing ropes.
  • Crumb Rubber Playground Surface was used beneath the structure.

If you want to see some great pictures of the playground being used, check out Kaboom’s listing here!
