Day 12- Storyland

I love Storyland.

It is such a cool place to go- gigantic mushrooms? Okay! A castle, a chapel, and the cutest bathrooms in the universe? Even better.

When I was a kid I was in a play there in the theater. I was there so often one summer, I remember thinking I was so cool like I was the queen of the kingdom. I was cool. I am cool.

Its great that I can still go and feel the exact same way as an adult as I did as a kid, the allure of brightly colored houses and stories being told at the turn of brightly colored keys is just too much. I can’t resist going and feeling like a real fairy tale princess.

I love that there is this little enchanted oasis in the middle of our city that kids and adults alike can escape to and satisfy their need for fun, funky fairy tale houses and waist high fairy tale characters. Storyland is a real treasure and is something that I really love about living in Fresno.

If you want to impress your best friends on their birthday, plan a picnic and head over to Roeding. After you’ve avoided/taunted/had your sandwich stolen by/run away from the geese, Storyland is the best. Ah, memories.)

    I think I still have a Storyland key in a memory box somewhere. Loved that place.

    …I hope for and expect all of these experiences, in this order, when I visit. :-)
