Santa Land

We went to Santa Land today! We heard about it from a friend and decided to check it out. It is an indoor/outdoor Christmas themed park. Inside you meet Santa and outside there is a nice little playground for the kids to run around and climb. To meet Santa, you stand in line in front of a 50-foot mini-village of different Christmas scenes. There was a carousel, a train that went around the whole village, a waterfall, a castle, and more.







The girls were PE-TRI-FIED of Santa - but Katie came around when he gave her an apple. She loves herself a good apple. Ate almost the whole thing - skin and all - on the ride home.



Tried to get a picture with Grandma in front of the tree - t.r.i.e.d.


After that debacle, we let them loose on the playground and they had a great time.

It was a short excursion - which was fine for this age. Everytime we do something like this I think ... it will get easier when they get older ... and take a deep breath.


And I wasn't kidding about that apple.

I finally figured out why I (or anyone who reads this blog) can't click on the pictures to make them bigger. It has to do with my dragging and dropping them in the "compose" mode. I think I have found a solution - but I didn't want to do this whole post over. I'll see if it works for the next post. Aargh!

Well this will be a day mom and dad remember for sure. Next year I'm sure they will understand Santa and be on his good side. :)
