Playin' at the Park

Nope. Not Balboa Park this time. :) We met up with our friends Nick and Melissa up at Kit Carson Park in Escondido. Kit Carson is a pretty great place to hang out on a nice sunny day!

We spent quite a bit of time hanging out in the sculpture garden (Queen Califia's Magical Circle) built by the fabulously talented Niki de St. Phalle. If you've ever been to UCSD, you are probably pretty familiar with the Sun God statue by Nikki. Kids LOVE her work because it just begs to be climbed on! Her style involves the very careful placement of tiles, stones and clay on enormous statues of bizarre, mythical creatures. We had fun running after Alex and Melanie as they checked out the cool statues!

Thanks so much for hanging out with us! We can't wait to see you for a nice dinner or brunch sometime very soon! :)
