Christmas 2005

The holidays started with C.J. driving down from northern California with Olivia's family. They stopped at our house and the first two pictures are taken there. They continued on to Judy's house in Newport Beach, where Christmas dinner was celebrated. Before Olivia's family returned, they stopped to see the Natural Museum at Exposition Park in downtown L.A. - next to the coliseum.

We didn't know it at the time, but this Christmas was the beginning of our family expanding to quite a few more people and our visitors from Florida took some time to explore Los Angeles.

It is hard to see the people in these pictures, but the first is Julie & C.J. in front of the museum.

Finally there is Karin, wandering through the Rose Garden, enjoying all the different types of roses and other fauna.
