This past Saturday we visited the Griffith Park Observatory. I have never been there and I really enjoyed myself. I don't think the boys were quite as excited as I was. Josiah was more concerned with looking into every little "telescope" and eating his snacks. I don't think Nathan was feeling that great because he was content to sit in his stroller (later in the afternoon he came down with a high fever). There are spectacular views even though this day it was quite smoggy. The architecture is amazing. And I learned quite a bit. I think the Observatory is ideal for school children who are studying the solar system and for adults. Besides, it is a free attraction and those are hard to find in L.A. The only catch is that on the weekends parking fills up and it can get a little crazy trying to find a spot.
