California Dreamin': Our Top Ten California Songs
Hey Californians! Thinking About That European Vacation and the Weak Dollar Got You Down? Cost of Airfare Making Hawaii or the East Coast Look Expensive?
Just load up the ol' iPod with our top ten favorite California songs and you're all set to spend your time (and $$$) here in the Golden State.
To make any California vacation complete, here's the list of our Top Ten Favorite California Songs:
10. San Francisco - Scott McKenzie
9. California - Joni Mitchell
8. California - Phantom Planet
7. I Left My Heart in San Francisco - Tony Bennett
6. California, Here I Come - Al Jolson
5. I Love L.A. - Randy Newman
4. California My Way - The Committee
3. California - Kenny Chesney
2. California Here I Come - Bill Evans
1. California Dreamin' - George Benson
We purposely avoided the Beach Boys (maybe one too many rounds of "California Girls" did it for us).
On a serious note, we hope that our family vacations - whether here in California or elsewhere - are an opportunity to expand our horizons, grow as a family, share our faith in our lives and words, and appreciate and understand the world God has placed us to be part of.
We hope our family vacations are an extension of our kid's homeschooling experience.
And, yes, we'll be taking the iPod along ...
