As we wrap up Thanksgiving, our family took some time to rest and enjoy the season. We took a leisurely drive up the coast heading to our extended family’s new place in Foster City.
We marveled at the sunny 70F weather, sparkling pacific ocean, vast farmland and wildlife.
After a scrumptious lunch at my favorite restaurant The Spaghetti Factory in Redwood City, we braved the Serramonte Mall in Daly City where my son purchased a pair of basketball shoes. It was a special moment witnessing him buy them with his first paycheck.
Later, my brother suggested we take a walk along Christmas in the Park. So, we jumped in the car and drove south to San Jose. It was nostalgic returning several years later with Uncle Greg and Aunt Connie. The sidewalks were jammed packed, because it was opening weekend.
We strolled along taking in all the sights and sounds. I even got some new ideidehow to decorate our tree.
After a couple of hours checking everything out, we parted ways.
The next day we attended church and were reminded that Jesus is the reason for the season. It easy to get distracted during the busyness. So, I hope to keep focused on Him through it all.
How about you? What do you enjoy doing during the Christmas season?
