Christmas Day

It's a little harder to get into the spirit with temperatures in the 80's, but the kids weren't complaining at all because Christmas day was the trip to Miami Beach.

We spotted this adorable car on the way into town.  I guess Santa and his reindeer fly a little lower down here.

Maybe we didn't have white snow, but there was lots of white sand to be enjoyed.

Emily always has her volleyball with her and is in search of a game, so when we spotted this grouping of nets she was very happy indeed.

I just had to share this photo of myself getting ready to receive a serve.  Oh wait...that's not me, but I can see where people would be confused.

We wandered down the street in the Art Deco district until we found a spot large enough for our group and had some lunch.

Then it was back to the beach for the kids and I continued down the street with the camera to photo some of the great buildings built from 1923 - 1943.

There are many vintage cars parked along the streets in keeping with the forties theme.

I spotted this dancer further down the street.  She was so taken with the holiday spirit!

Long Live the Queen


  1. Most, not all, of the beach pictures reminds me of my years as a kid growing up near Galveston. I never quite felt right about it being Christmas. I guess the snow and cold just feels like Christmas, even now. It's the good old "White Christmas" sentiment. It looks like yours was merry, though!

  2. Oh, I love the photos of the buildings and the vintage car. We had one just like that. My dad was so proud when he drove it home the day he bought it. Same color and all. Mmm, such fun memories. Thanks. Hugs, Edna B.
