Queen Califia’s Magic Circle Garden

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Since it’s starting to warm up down here, I wanted to get the kids up to Escondido to see Queen Califia’s Magic Circle Garden.  If you have ever been there, you know the whole place is covered in glass mosaic so as the weather gets warm, so does the glass.  I think last year we went up there in the middle of summer and the glass was too hot to touch!  Our plan this morning was to get up there before it started getting too hot.  Well, due to an issue of a missing little girl shoe, we left a little later then planned.  Anyway, we got up there and let the kiddos run around for awhile until they were worn out and we were too hot.  The kiddos were fascinated by the black, white, and mirror maze and loved looking at their reflections.  Once they found their way out of the maze they had a blast in the circle.  They ran and ran and ran until they were totally worn out.  They loved touching all the glass and looking at all the colors.  It was so much fun!  I love watching the kids discover new stuff and get excited when they see new things.  Here are some pictures from our morning.
