Yesterday we went to the Gilroy Gardens - a great family park that is only about 45 minutes away from us. Unlike Disneyland, this park is built specifically for preschoolers, even though there are a couple of rides there for older children and adults. Most of the rides require chaperone anyway, but there were some where she could ride by herself. We spent 3.5 hours there, and she had a great time. I heard her talking to her toys during the nap - her narrative was constantly interrupted by giggles and excited panting, but it went like this:
Kitty, I want to tell you about the great time that I had. I went on boats... and I went in a strawberry. And then I went on a Ferris Wheel high-high up, and we went back down. Oh, and we went in a balloon... It was just a little bit scary. Not very scary, but a little scary. And I went on a train! But the train wasn't Tootle. Tootle is yellow, and our train was black.
Needless to say, we'll be coming back this summer. Thinking whether to buy a membership or just play it by ear :)
