Costa Mesa 60th Anniversary Celebration in Review         The Costa Mesa 60th anniversary celebration has come to an end, and we were fortunate to have the opportunity to attend.              It was fun to walk down the middle of the street and realize that this was where there were usually so many cars as we strolled along amidst numerous restaurants and artists who were creating their artwork while we watched.                                    There was also the wonderful classic car show where my son kept pointing out the cars that were sale in hopes that I would take one home.                                                                 There was even a preview of the upcoming Orange County Fair with a few carnival rides and games for the kids to enjoy.   We spent a lovely after...

Riding in a Convertible Fire Truck - Speechless Sundays         We were at a classic car show in Costa Mesa when we spotted a convertible fire truck.  We were excited to pose with it when it got even better.  One of the firemen asked the boys if they wouldn't rather drive the fire truck.  What boy could resist? Especially, when it was made official with a helmet!
