Festival of Christmas ~

the day after Christmas began with a short trip up the highway to pick up our two 
oldest grands, Julia and Aubrie.  The big event of the day (after In N Out burger for lunch) was our
second annual Festival of Christmas at the Lamb's Theater on Coronado Island .
Let me get this out of the way, it was 79 degrees.....

 Our beautiful oldest Grand daughter Julia ~

Below are a couple of shots as we traveled over the Coronado Bay Bridge, it was beautiful!

 Myself and the girls at the very popular Hotel Del, we took a little tour, it is something to see....

Julia and Aubrie

 Not to warm for a little ice skating :-)

Pa so proud of his gals...

 We bought the girls little turtles made of sea shells...

This is Daisy.....

Tradition....stop for hot chocolate next to the theater, tea for Grandma....

Outside the theater

 The stage for the production

Intermission....Pa was not sure Julia was enjoying the play, then she looked at him and said,
"this is so awesome"!  She recognized a little girl from last years play that was a favorite character
of all of ours...of course she became a favorite for this play as well.  After the play in the lobby, her Grandpa introduced Julia
to the little actress and Julia was thrilled!

 To Gramma's house we go!

Nothing I love more than creating memories with my we get manicures!!
Full hearts.... echo from my heart today :-)

  2. I absolutely LOVE times like this! They are just flat out the best times of all for me. The girls are just adorable. Haven't been to the Hotel Del for a LONG LONG time, but your pictures make me want to visit again soon. Soo glad you had a good time!

  3. Debi, that looks like so much fun! The girls are adorable and they have to be soaking up all of that attention. I didn't realize you were so close to San Diego! We were there a few months ago and are going back soon.
