Christmas without the white stuff was different. But once we strolled down Christmas Tree Lane not shivering and freezing, it was nice to see all the beautifully decorated houses in Cathedral City. Plus since we were tied up with the Christmas Tree Lot through the 23rd, we shopped at an outlet mall in Palm Springs on Christmas Eve. So many stores; so many people. We then ended Christmas Eve with mass at a very nice church where there was lots of singing the good ole traditional Christmas songs. Christmas was a very beautiful day and Kelsey and Darlene spent it by the pool side. Shaun was unable to join us in sunny California but was missed by all. It was just a nice quiet day at our campsite with a great Honey-baked Christmas dinner. After Christmas day, we rode the Aerial Tram Ride up San Jacinto Mountain in Palm Springs only to find 2 feet of snow. You could go sledding or walk the trails but since we got their a little later in the day, we missed that part. Darn!!! It sure was nice to take the tram down and leave the snow behind (like those frozen winters in Michigan). We also played a round of Best ball at the Ivey Golf Course just down the street from our campground. It was Kelsey's first time at golf and she has a pretty good swing.
Time to move on to our next destination -- Pasadena here we come!!!!
