I Miss You, Fun Forest.

Today, I miss the Fun Forest.  I wonder where all these rides  got dismantled and shipped off to.  Billions of happy butts sat in those seats.  Billions of decibels of happy screams, all gone now.  Replaced by an overpriced, ego-driven glass museum whose artist is already ubiquitous in the northwest and has his own museum elsewhere.  I sincerely love fine art, but kids really don't have nearly enough places to hang out for good clean fun in this city.  What a shame.
The children were robbed.

I'm thankful to have had the time I had with this place.  3 birthday parties for my kid, many afternoons with friends and family, and many 15-minute breaks while working at EMP.
Brief, sunny, loud, happy music memories.
