A great day out! On the brisk afternoon we travelled out to Newhall, CA visited the windows on Main Street, amply decorated in their holiday best. Troop 705 is shown! Great Job to all the kids who participated in this years decorating.

Then it was on our way to Hart Park! I was surprised we found just great parking - right across the street from the park. We then meandered down to the Veterans Memorial Plaza. Be sure to visit the tranquil fountains, memorial plaques and flags. Quick snaps with the statue and we lept across the street!



HART PARK
We were welcomed by staff that gave us quick lay of the land. To our right snow and crafts, to our ... SNOW???!!! We made a bee-line and had an impromptu snow ball fight. -- not in a "Christmas Story" kind of way - but more of a scoop/toss , now your turn way! :-) --



After working up an appetite we headed over to the Town Grind for salad and soup. Yummy! Check them out on Lyons or online at http://www.towngrindcafe.com/



Then we headed over for story time. I love storytime! We heard many authors, but the winner of our BEST AFTERNOON STORY TELLER .... Barbara Jean Hicks with The Secret Life of Walter Kitty! Audience participation complete with getting to meow like Wally, or Growl like Fang! Build that imagination and the rest will follow! http://www.barbarajeanhicks.com/ OR check out Barnes and Noble and search for Walter Kitty: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ OR Try: http://tinyurl.com/walterkitty



We then meandered through the vendor booths, the PTA, the Library,



and then we saw this Penguin... I could not resist the pic! LookIt Comic Books ... Good ol' fashioned... well - Witty for sure.. check them out http://www.donteatanybugs.net/



And we wrapped up the afternoon with a performance from Street Beat! It was great to see them here entertaining the crowd! http://www.streetbeat.biz/

A fun day all around, and it was great to meet you and your son, Leah. You strike me as another cat who dreams BIG! :-)
