Dia De Los Muertos

Members of our family went to the San Luis Rey Mission to set up an alter for Dia De Los Muertos. Having just lost my husband and most recently my father, it was very therapeutic for Nick and I to do this. Here's Nick and I with other family members.


Here's the finished alter with many family photographs, artifacts, and foods.


 Here's a close up, the small framed photograph is my father who recently passed away and the larger poster board is my father in law who died five years ago.


 Nick and I did a lot of people watching while we were at the festival and when this little girl and her dog came by we had to have a photo of her. She and her dad were happy to oblige.
