Brrrr! Riding in an open top Jaguar as part of a parade held in December at night. Pictured Here: "Best New Business" Peninsula School of Music owners Lisa Kato Fitchett and Mark Fitchett riding in the Festival of Lights Parade in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
The last three posts are from just a couple of days that we took off to celebrate our birthdays and have a big birthday/housewarming party while Mark's family was in town from British Columbia. On October 6th, seventy-one friends, family and music students came by to help us celebrate over the course of the day!
