Pride of Laguna Beach, California: Pageant of the Masters

By: Roxy on 08/22/08 @ 9:00 am

One year, instead of taking our annual family trip to California in February, Rex and I would like to take the girls to Laguna Beach in late July or August, in order to attend the Pageant of the Masters, a really cool event that I haven’t been to in years, since Rex and I travelled to the [...]
