So last Saturday and Sunday most of my day was spent watching General Conference. On Monday we traveled from Bakersfield, CA back to the San Bernardino Mountains. On the way we stopped at the San Fernando Mission. It is the 4th of the 21 missions of California. It is a beautiful little mission. Made of of course with adobe (mud bricks), it is filled with lots of history.
AJ liked the sprinklers at the Mission until they turned around and chased him back!
I learned that “I Love You California” is our California State Song and not “California Here I Come.” It is not that great of a song, I wish “California Here I Come” was our state song.
In addition to being a mission it is home to the Bob Hope Memorial Garden. In a little corner in the back of the mission, it is a beatiful little memorial place. AJ enjoyed the water a little too much and we had to drag AJ away from the pond (sorry if AJ liked your pond too much Mr. Hope):
Then we finished our day at Disneyland. I enjoyed going through the new Space Mountain ride called “Galactic Ghost.” Same ride, but now a space ghost chases you throughout the ride, it is fun. Also, AJ enjoyed the waterball in Tommorowland and I got my first ranking on Buzz Lightyear (yay,for secret targets)!
It was a really busy weekend, but it was fun!
