If tearing around the stores on Black Friday with your kids isn’t your idea of fun then take them for some fun in the snow with sledding in San Rafael instead.
Also get in the festive mood with a trip around the Christmas House in West End Nursery where you can pick up this year’s tree decoration from 50 different themed trees!
Have a great Thanksgiving!
