CELEBRATING EASTER


We took a photo of ourselves before we left the house. 
We ate in the Music Room with lovely piano music 
and of course the Easter Bunny was there too!
(click on photo to enlarge them)

 The plates I enjoyed, the adorable children's table 
and no I didn't eat all those desserts....but I wanted to!


The dessert room....absolutely amazing!
Loved the chocolate fountain....


Some inside and outside views of the Mission Inn.


President Nixon and his wife Pat were married at the Mission Inn. 


It was a very enjoyable day for us.  Different not being with our children but it was a wonderful buffet and they meet our every need. We took our time and enjoyed each others company while sipping our mimosa's. Then we drove around looking at some of the older historic homes in downtown Riverside. Hope your Easter was memorable.
