I’ve been to Griffith Observatory many times, but I hadn’t known about the park section. Turns out there’s some activities there for the tykes starting with the horsey rides. Ellis loves riding carousels, and it’s about time she got to try out a real horse. This place is perfect because 1) she gets to ride a real damn horse 2) the saddle and straps work very well to keep her safe 3) tons of other kids there to share the fun with.
The horses come in three “speeds”: slow, medium and fast. You have to chose slow if you’re under three. And, the slow horses “run” in the inside lane while the faster horses run in the outside lane.
Ellis was lucky today. Right next to the horses is her next favorite thing in the word, trains.
As we took our leave, we meet two miniature horses who are responsible for towing a miniature chuck wagon.
On the other side of Griffith Park, there’s this historical carousel. Oh, might as well.
We went to Korea Town for dinner after Griffith Park. After dinner, we walked around the plaza to do some shopping. Ellis had her fill of jia jian mien and even some vegie dumplings. Both of these items were somewhat risque as she’s very food picky which we think is resulting in her defecating difficulties. Ellis actually started to poop after dinner, and we were ecstatic that she did. Afterwards, we took her back to our SUV to get her diaper changed. After she’s changed, we went back to the plaza to finish our shopping. Ellis attempted to hold my hands, but I pulled my hand away and told her that I needed to wash my hands first after wiping her butt.
So, the “butt” of the joke is, after I washed my hands, I attempted to hold Ellis’ hand. But, she didn’t let me hold her hand for the rest of the night as she thought my hands were dirty. That ungrateful… = D.
