Last night we decided to get some Christmas cheer and visit the Garden of Lights festival. I love how local areas get behind the festive season and the North County is no different. Side Note: It's a real american thing to have such a great community spirit and its one of my favourite things about living in the US. That along with delicious cookies, sunny San Diego sunshine and HGTV (jokes, jokes....well kinda :)
When we arrived the San Diego Botanic Gardens was lit up with over 100 000 lights and was full of festive cheer with mulled wine, marshmallow roastings, horse and carriage rides, sledding and santa visits. I think my favourite was singing carols with Matilda at the Christmas show. It may be my overly pregnant state but it really made me so happy that we could sing with the carollers and dance to the christmas songs. She really has grown up so much in this year. I mean, she wears her hair in pigtails now! That is major in itself. I can't even imagine how much she is going to understand and enjoy about Christmas next year.
And for my San Diego mama's I've got a good inside scoop for you - Check out North County Deals because they are offering close to the 30% off with $10 adult and $6 kids tickets to the Garden of Lights Monday - Wednesday. That means more money for your hot cocoa and marshmallow roastings. Hooray for that! So be sure to visit North County Deals and grab your tickets pronto!
Oh and PS - check out Matilda visiting Santa.... she's still not sure about him so I had to sit between them as a safety buffer. ha!
