Finding creative ways to
When we arrived 'snow' was spotted along with a 'sledding hill.' While waiting our turn in line I wasn't sure how the whole thing would go. Either Marcus would be terrified of flying down the icy slope, or he'd love it.
|His face kills me. I swear he's loving every second of it.|
Because the 'snow' was more packed ice than 'snow', and somewhat dangerous for toddlers, we checked it out only briefly.
We got up close and personal to a police horse.
We were in awe of a fire truck that helped assist in placing the star atop of the Christmas tree.
Quality time with our bestie was had.
Hot cocoa anyone?
We even had our second sighting of Santa this season.
When it was time for the main event - the tree lighting - I have to admit, it was incredibly anticlimactic (the tree was reminiscent of the Charlie Brown tree, and the lights were kind of sparse). But, the kids loved it, and our nap-less afternoon was a solid success (rather than an epic meltdown-mess, which is what I was fully anticipating).
Of course, the second we drove away I saw this in the back seat..
A Christmas Tree Lighting success!
