We went to the artistic village in Balboa Park. Its a place where all these artist work and sell their art. We both thought the painted stones were pretty.

After walking around for awhile we decided it was time to get some food and spread out our picnic blanket in the shade of a tree. Alison got to eat some of mommy's chicken from her grilled chicken sandwhich. She really likes it (especially when mommy put a little ketchup on it!) Here is Alison licking the ketchup that didnt quite make it into her mouth.

We got lucky that we picked today to go to Balboa park becuase it was Silent Movie Night at the Spreckles Organ! They were showing the 1927 movie The Yankee Clipper. It didn't occur to me until we were half way through the movie but it was Alison's first time going to a movie!
Alison points out that the projector screen in front of the organ.
We got there really early and were able to watch them set up, they are all volunteers to sometimes things had to come down and then up again :)
Here we are with front row seats! The average attendance for Silent Movie Night is 3,000. Every seat is filled and people start sitting on the ground. Alison had a good time watching all the people.
But when Alison got restless we took turns walking around the pavillion with her
When night fell they started the movie and we got to see 'Hop-Alomg Cassidy' (William Boyd) before he ever did a western movie.
Alison didn't stay awake for the whole movie, it was pretty late I was surprised she stayed up as long as she did! But she was really good and didn't throw a crying fit once!
We took this picture of the Organ pavillion when we were walking back to the car, the picture is no where near as pretty as it actually was, all the little lights shining in the dark ourlining the pavillion. We had a really fun day.
