Years ago I heard about Roeding Park in Fresno California and looked it up and planned a visit.Â Fresno is only about two hours away from Bakersfield and I had read that they had a zoo, a playland with small rides, and Storyland (Where Fairytales come to Life!).Â Â The parkÂ had otherÂ amenities too but the ones I've listed were the ones that interested me the most because I wanted to take my daughter to them.
So one day, we packed up, along with my parents and made the first of many trips to Storyland!
My daughter and my dad at the well that Jack and Jill visited when they came tumbling down and Jack broke his crown!
My daughter sitting in King Arthur's throne in the castle.Â That's Excalibur to the side.
The Three Bears and my daughter who made a perfect Goldilocks!
We always had so much fun at Storyland and went back again and again through the years.Â I'm not sure if its the same as it used to be but I hope to take my grandsons and visit sometime soon!
