We had a lovely time seeing my Mother and Father-in-law. We were able to relax, shop for Christmas at Fashion Square (well, mostly window shopping for us there!), visit, and shop at great markets such as Sunflower Market. www.sfmarkets.com You could walk there from the condo. How great! If you put “gluten free” in the search site area on the web page, you will get recipes, articles, gluten free shopping tips, etc. It was a nicely laid out store with great produce and the prices for our almond and rice milk was cheaper than at home.
On Saturday morning, my daughter got to swim outside in December. It was so weird listening to “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” while she paddled around with my mom, who also came along on the trip. However, I soon got over the unseasonable Christmas weather when we hopped into the whirlpool. Ahhhh…..I could get used to that!
After cleaning up and a short nap, we headed out for the next part of our day: sightseeing. We stopped at a cute railroad park and rode a small train and the carousel. Note the short sleeves.
And for dinner? Gluten and dairy-free pizza out at a restaurant! Woo-hoo! More on that later. It deserves a blog entry all it’s own! Yummm……
