There are several outings that we all take part of during this holiday break from school and activities. It is so nice to be together and enjoy each other’s company without hurrying at all.
I have been going to Christmas In The Park every year since I was little and I love sharing it with my kids!
Santa made an appearance – we had to explain that it wouldn’t be practical for Santa to have his sleigh and reindeer on the street.
This is one of my very favorite places to visit. I love to go at this time of year to see the Monarch Butterflies that are migrating. They cluster in the eucalyptus trees and I find it amazing.
This was a new find for us. The food was fabulous and the ambiance was great!
Our family loves to get out hiking and there are so many places for us to go around here. On this day we brought my husband’s younger brother and family and also a friend. Nothing better than sharing the holidays with family and good friends.
We have been taking this same photo – the kids with a baby elephant bronze sculpture – for so many years. I have this same photo from back when we only had one kid! We can put them all together and watch our family grow!
This is another one we take every year. It’s right at the entrance to the Children’s Petting Zoo.
Obviously the kids are WAY faster than I am! I really love all these tradition and look forward to them every year!
