Who Knew Artichokes Were So Much Fun?

We made a return visit to California's only horticultural theme park last weekend and immediately boarded the artichoke ride, a much desired treat for Q-ster. We'd taken home a park map from our last trip, and he pored over it, examining the attractions and deciding what he wanted to do next. Fortunately, the 'chokes were pretty fun, even if he wasn't too excited about getting his picture taken.
Mom, get me out of this artichoke!

Later he took his first ride on a (small) ferris wheel. Upon further reflection, I think it was my first time too.

We also admired some of the crazy "circus trees." Since he’s grown less fond of posing for pictures, I asked him to take a picture of me in front of the basket tree, and he was thrilled to oblige. Picture not shown because Mama was looking disheveled, but we had another good bonding day.
