Exploring Pigeon Point

Hello ,my bucket list friends !On Dec. 29th 2018 , my parents and I took a day trip to Pigeon Point . It was a great adventure and I’m excited to tell you all about it , here we go!

 

Exploring Pigeon Point

Pigeon point is a beautiful ocean side spot that is known for it’s lighthouse. Currently work is being done on the light house so it’s closed but I still got some great pictures of it. One of the first things we did when we got there was walk down a little trial to the beach . It was a beautiful sunny day and the beach was gorgeous ! I had a great time on the beach walking around and taking pictures . There were beautiful seashells all over the beach .After spending some time on the beach we went to go explore more of Pigeon Point. We walked around the area where the light house is and took in some great views of the ocean. There was also a little museum with some information about the area and a huge prism in the middle of the room .In another building there was a gift shop I got some fun things to remember the trip by. Overall it was a fun and beautiful place that is worth seeing .

Christmas Eve and Christmas day 2018

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I hope all of you had a very merry Christmas. Before we get into wrapping up 2018 I wanted to write about my Christmas eve and Christmas day celebrations. Here we go !

 

Christmas Eve and Christmas day 2018

On Christmas Eve my family and I went to my cousin’s house to celebrate Christmas but before we did that there was a lot that needed to be done. My dad spent a lot of cooking and baking for our family get -together. We delivered some baked good to the neighbors and made a quick stop at the store before arriving at my cousin’s house. At my cousin’s house there were lots of great food and drinks, wonderful laughter and two fun gift exchange games ! It was a smaller get – together then we have had in past years but it was still just as fun. I had a fun Christmas Eve with celebrating with my family . Christmas day was very busy but a lot of fun ! Christmas morning we opened up gifts and my dad made us all great breakfast. We delivered some more baked goods to neighbors before heading out to eat and  to the movies. We had a wonderful dinner I love pasta ! Then we went to see Mary Poppins Returns. We all really enjoyed the movie it was so much fun I loved the songs! It was a great family movie and I’m glad we saw it !

That was my families Christmas celebration I hope you enjoyed reading about it !

Hello, my bucket list friends it’s time for a fun and happy post! As many of you know I’m a big kid at heart who loves toys . Well, on Saturday I got this very cute toy dog from Costco and it is not just any toy dog it’s from American Girl ! I can’t wait to tell you all about it . Here we go !

 

 

My new friend Lavender !

 

On whim my friend asked me to go to Costco with her . I was excited to get to spend some time with her. I had no idea I would find something there that I just couldn’t pass up .  While my friend and I were looking around in Costco . I saw these awesome American Girl pets . There was a huge horse but also some very cute dogs and cats . I walked away at first but I could not stop thinking about how much I wanted to get one of the dogs . As you have probably guessed now I ended up getting one . I finally got around to opening her today . She comes with cute little book that has quizzes and other fun things inside . After looking at the book  I named her Lavender to remind me to take time to relax and reduce stress .  She is a really cool toy that can stand up or sit down . I love how she has moveable legs . I cant wait to fill out more information about her in the book she came with !

Rock on ! – Christina Epperly

Fantasy of lights 2018

Hello, my bucket list friends ! This weekend I got to enjoy one of my favorite Christmas time things ,Christmas lights ! There is this really cool event in my area called Fantasy of lights I’ve mentioned this before in a blog post from last year.( you can read it here ). Anyways I thought I’d go into more detail about this fun event . Let’s get to it !

 

Fantasy of lights 2018

Fantasy of lights is this wonderful event where a local park goes all out with the Christmas lights . There are many colorful light displays set up you can see everything from penguins to dinosaurs . The event started 20 years ago but I remember when it was  new! It used to be just a drive through attraction but later on walk through nights were offered .  After doing both more then once I can honestly say that the walk through nights are my favorite . This year I did the walk through with my parents . I saw my favorite light displays including the ice skating bears, the bear climbing the huge candy cane and the big Fantasy of lights arch. There was a light display of cat that I think was new . It’s fun to see all the displays that have been added over the years .  It was cold and crowded that night but it was still enjoyable . One of the things that have changed since this event started is that you now have to get tickets before you go because it has become so popular . Even with the all cold and all the people it was worth going to this year. I hope everyone is enjoying the last month of 2018 .
