i took lily to the japanese gardens at csulb a few weeks ago. little did i know it was also graduation day so parking was insane. after driving around forever and walking a mile, we finally made our way inside. lily had fun feeding the koi fish, running over the bridges and trying to get into pictures with all the graduates who were posing in their caps and gowns. if you're looking for a fun (and free) activity for your children, this is a great place to go.
