Photo Challenge Day 10: Childhood Memory

Photo Challenge Day 10

My grandmother was involved with the California Missions Foundation.  She helped with Fiesta every year, and we spent a lot of time running around there.  We also spent a lot of time learning about mistreatment of the Ohlone, so no need to chastise me for being fond of missions.  

This was hers, and when she died, my mom gave it to me.  I also have two more (Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo).  In fourth grade when we studied the Missions, we each made a model mission, and I made mine with clay on a tile, after this one.  My mom has it somewhere.
