Santa took the day off preparing for Christmas to visit the Teradata Holiday party for families. The boys had a blast doing crafts, and eating pizza and lots of sweets. I even got to show the boys my desk and give them a tour of the Teradata campus.


We visited the koalas and then wandered around the new Africa Rocks section of the zoo until the sun went down. Once it was dark, we got to enjoy all the Christmas lights and decorations that lit up the park for the holidays, part of their annual “Jungle Bells” celebration.


We went by the Safari Park to see if all the animals were ready for Santa to come visit. The tigers didn’t act very excited, they were just taking naps or just laying around.

The next stop was the goat corral, where we gave them got a nice brushing, so they would look nice for Santa. We finished off our visit by watching the elephants, rhinos, and giraffes roam around.



We started off at the “Embracing Peace” statue by the Midway, and then worked our way down the waterfront to Seaport Village.


It has become a bit of a tradition for us to go to The Old Globe in Balboa Park and see the Dr Seuss Christmas tree. Afterwards, we spent the afternoon at the Fleet Science Center.
