LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Two-year-old Courtney was squirming in her father’s arms and fussing as he tried to keep hold of her on a warm summer evening near Louisville’s Big Four Pedestrian Bridge.
“Oh, no, she’s not happy,” said Jonathan White about his daughter.
The struggle was only brief after White, Courtney and his nine-year-old son Deonquaye arrived at the playground near the bridge. Soon, Courtney’s grouchy mood passed as she spotted the throng of children climbing on stairs, slipping down slides and running through spraying water. When White put her down, she took off running toward the crowd with Deonquaye and their father trailing her.
