A Grape Day For Dad!

Okay... sorry about that title there's just no good excuse.

For Father's Day we headed out to Grape Day Park in Escondido to see the park and the children's museum there. Well that was the plan. It was a poorly researched one, as, even though I checked the website, I for some reason failed to read it. Particularly the part about the museum being closed on Sundays!




The grape themed playground was a hit with the kids though.






Then we wandered about the park and into the Art Center....



This place turned out to be great!


This gym was one of many interactive exhibits.




We got in trouble for taking pictures but fortunately we managed to get some of the bookhouse!



I really don't get how they built this.






It's even wired with an overhead light!




In the end a great Father's Day outing. :)

Thanks for sharing that day in my home town, beautiful San Diego! What community do you live in? We lived there until 2008 when he began our journey that we are on now. I have never been there to the book house and museum.
You will get used to the earthquakes somewhat, I was born in California so I had them all my life, although we still don't take them too lightly.

It was a good day, we should try and make it back there!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
