Tivoli

Michael, John and I went to Tivoli with our pastor's wife and two children today. [The Flickr set is here.] Opened in 1843, Tivoli is the second oldest continually operating amusement park in the world. Originally it was largely comprised simply of gardens, the lake and cafes, though now you can find your typical roller coasters and ferris wheels. It's very beautiful, especially at night when hundreds of thousands of lights trim every edge of the 15 acre park.

They have a special play area for smaller children who aren't old enough or tall enough to ride even the children's rides. We let John loose over there for a while and he had a great time. He was mesmerized by all the new sights and sounds. And everywhere we went there was a new fountain for him to splash in.

I remember reading about Tivoli in Number the Stars. Pretty pictures, Bekah!
