Vacation: Sunday Griffith Park

California Vacation
Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round

Once we arrived in California, around 12 pm, our first destination was Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round. What better way to start off a Disneyland vacation then where Walt Disney, himself, used to take his girls. And what sparked his brilliant idea of creating a family-centered theme park, known as Disneyland. 




                           







The kids loved it! Unfortunately, they only took cash, which we didn't have at the time, so the kids resorted to playing, dancing and picture taking instead! The music, on the carousel, was amazing and sounded like what a traditional, vintage carousel would sound like.

Hahaha! That is SO life! Just when you think you're doing a great job making a new memory, you realize you're out of cash and you're afraid you're going to ruin everything. Luckily kids are pretty resilient, and they know deep down that we do our best, so you can't really ruin an awesome vacation (or their childhood for that matter) just because one tiny thing doesn't turn out like you hoped. :)

That's a neat story about that park inspiring Walt Disney. I never knew that little bit of history.
