Santa Monica Pier



                   One Day last week I took my girls to the Santa Monica Pier. It's a great place
         to bring your kids. Lots of entertainment and fun. I love walking on the beach deck
                                                    and looking over at the beautiful view.


The colors of these building make me happy!



The best reason to come. The Ferris wheel over the ocean!


                                                                 Hot Dog on a Stick, anyone?


                                                                        Love This.


                                                           A perfect day 85 degree day in the Sun.
