Entertainment. On Saturday we attended our traditional visit to The Rancho Los Alamitos in Long Beach. This tucked away nature never land is situated by Cal State Long Beach and hosts a Christmas event every year. There are crafts for the kids and grown ups, breakfast, tours of the historic Rancho house which dates back to 1790 and of course Santa Claus is there to help with some memorable pictures and wish lists. The Rancho hosts events all year round and this time we ended up signing up to become members. Most of the events are kid friendly and they really do a good job of keeping the little ones happy. I remember attending a story time last year where different stories would be told in secret locations over the sprawling gardens with each story linking up with the next one. This year we linked up ourselves with The Wilson's, Brian, Erin, Claire and Audrey Mae and the girls had a lot of fun watching the singers, making some Christmas crafts and of course meeting the formidable red suited hero they call Mr Claus.
