Yesterday (5/31/14) the Carlsen crew stopped by Riverside on their way to Arizona. With only a few hours to take a stretch break the Pedrozas had to think of some quick family places to take them. We decided on Fairmount Park and Tio Tacos.
Fairmount Park used to be a very sad park, but it has been cleaned up a lot in the last few years and now is a very family friendly park. It has two playgrounds, a rose garden, and a tank you can climb on (which only takes .58 miles to walk to, yes I GPS’d it).
Ryan and Tyler play at the Carousel Playground.

Proof, see really it wasn’t that far to the tank. Although, I am sorry that Tyler thought it was too far :(.
After playing in Fairmount Park the Carlsens were hungry so we took them to one of our favorite Mexican food places called Tio Tacos. We like Tio Tacos because the prices are reasonable and you can’t beat the ambience.

I am not sure the Carlsen kids enjoyed the Mexican food, but they still had fun talking.
