While visiting my daughter, Corrie, and her family in San Diego, I'm staying at Santee Lakes campground - probably the most expensive place I've ever stayed. But it is beautiful, and close to where Corrie lives.
Santee Lakes is a string of lakes, run by the water authority. There are campsites along the lake, but I didn't score one of those.
Lots of mallards, coots and wood ducks live here too.
And cormorants, which are a little more shy.
Although my spot is not on the lake, it is REALLY nice - large and not lined up in a row with other RVs.
This is why I'm here - to celebrate my favorite holiday with my grandchildren. Jonathan is a Gold Ninja, and Mara wanted to be, of all things, a moustache! I made the moustache part of her costume, and Corrie found moustache earrings, socks, suspenders, and shirt, mostly on Amazon. (Who knew!)
Granddog Coco did not complain about having to haul a cowgirl around on her back.
Corrie went through a ton of candy. Some of my favorite visitors were the Monions from Despicable Me -
And this cute little pirate.
So where's the picture of your costume? It is your favorite holiday, after all... ;c)ReplyDelete
Gotta say that is the first time I have ever seen a mustache costume. Too funny. It's so fun to see all the creative things kids can come up with.ReplyDelete
I'm with Donna - a mustache is really a unique idea. And you did a great job on it.ReplyDelete
Great costume!! I didnt know you liked to sew? I dont like to see RV's all lined up in rows either.ReplyDelete
Cute costumes - your grandkids are so cute!!ReplyDelete
I've stayed at Santee Lakes twice for a month each time. Yes, it is a great campground and the first place I've seen all the waterbirds there, except for ducks, of course. I agree, very expensive! Have fun!
Last I heard, Tioga George was at Santee Lakes.ReplyDelete
Oh! I can't believe I missed him! I had stopped reading his blog, but I met him in person years ago - a very neat guy!ReplyDelete
It was always my favorite holiday too. Love the pictures of Mara and Jonathan and the other kids. I love how the kids are so creative now.ReplyDelete
