“Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the Mall of his choice.”  Dave Barry

We’re hanging out at the Shasta Mall in Redding, California waiting for Papa G to finish up a morning of business back at the hotel before we head on to San Francisco where Baby Girl’s Mommy and Daddy are anxiously awaiting her return.  We ended up at the Mall because I typed “playground” in to Map Quest, and this is where it instructed me to go.  We ended up just running up and down the open areas as the Playground was full of kids and quite hectic.  She was happy with that though . . . but finally it was break time and snack time.  That’s when I captured this with my iPad.   She’s just chillin’!  

Funny thing is I never go to the Mall anymore, and will avoid it like the plague during the holiday season.  I prefer to either do my gift shopping on-line, or make something that is personal and meaningful.   I just can’t do the crazy crowds anymore.  I didn’t buy one thing here at this Mall – even tho I did do a bit of window shopping.  Everything is either too expensive or just not what I’m looking for.  I would have bought a rain jacket for the Baby if I had found one . . . but could not find a single clothing store that sells them for toddlers.  Weird.  So – maybe I need to design something and get it on the market asap??  Hmmm . . . 



“The wonder of a miracle from which this love began.  There is so much found in the touch of holding a grandchild’s hand.”  Unknown

We’re on the second day of our four day trip to California, staying two nights at my Son’s house just south of Portland, Oregon.  We picked my 5 year old Granddaughter up from Kindergarten and took her shopping at CostCo and Fred Meyer.  Since it was lunch time we thought we’d stop somewhere to eat.  Well, she had her mind set from the moment we mentioned CostCo!  She LOVES their hot dogs.  She says NO ONE makes them like Cost Co.  And she ate the whole darned thing!  Then off to Fred Meyer we went to try on anything pink . . . she ended up with a pink quilted vest and a pink sparkly hat to wear with it.  Quite stylin’.  Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get a picture of her in it.

Isn’t she just so cute??
