Christmas is coming to Balboa Park!

Each year, Balboa Park hosts "Christmas On The Prado" where thousands and thousands of visitors come to see our city's crown jewel all decked out in Christmas lights, songs, food and just good Christmas cheer. Today, Kinder and Molly went on a walk through the park to see how the festivities are shaping up!

The Air And Space Museum has an exhibit with NASA AND Snoopy! What could be a better combination? We'll have to visit that soon!

Kinder enjoyed the gardens....

...and the fountains too!

This one daisy was growing all by itself in the hedge.

Playing on top of a huge blue vase - luckily Kinder didn't fall in! Mr. Park Ranger probably would not be too happy about that one!

"You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch!" The famous "Old Globe Theatre" puts on a production of "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" every year and every year, the Grinch himself peeks out over the theatre. Sarah HATED seeing him when she was a little girl!

Here's Kinder with members of Whoville!

Molly LOVES taking pictures of flags!

Kinder wanted to go for a swim but it was way too cold!

And here's the head elf himself....

...and Rudolph too!

It's hard to see but the reindeer are pulling Santa's sleigh!

There are Biblical scenes from the birth of Jesus on display at the park.

Each year, the Del Cerro Baptist Church creates and performs "The Living Christmas". It takes all the volunteers hours and hours to just get the huge tree ready!

Kinder loves sitting in trees and Balboa Park certainly has gorgeous ones!

Ta-ta for now!
