Rochelle's work gave her some tickets to Elitch Gardens, so on Friday we went downtown to check it out. Overcrowded... check. Busted rides... check. Seedy peeps... check. The best way to describe Elitch would be if Disneyland replaced all their rides with the ones you see at the state fair. Ghetto. Anyhow, all was not lost as we got Xander a turn on the carousel.
