A Little Christmas Fun

This year one of our local water parks (Schlitterbahn) decided to do a whole set-up for Christmas. Our friends Brian and Katie invited us to come with them and we had a great time! The entire park was decked out in lights with Christmas music playing throughout. They had carolers dressed up like they were straight out of the Christmas Carol, light shows on the river, a toddler straw bale maze, snow machines with bubble snow, hot cider, hot chocolate, and my very favorite, cotton candy. :) They also had sledding down one of the water slides, and ice skating, but we didn't do these since we had the kiddos. It even turned chilly that night so we could enjoy our hot drinks and feel more in the Christmas mood. Benjamin loved all the lights and things to do. He wasn't real fond of being confined to the wagon, but with it being dark and there being a lot of people, we couldn't let him walk much. So he and Cale shared the wagon that Brian and Katie brought and shared lots of snacks. :)

Very independantly doing the maze
Cotton Candy. Woohoo!
Being bad parents and letting our son try some too. He actually was not all that impressed.

Doing what he loves best!
Going through the "car wash" - In the summer they have water coming down, but for Christmas they had a snow machine set up inside it.
Praise the Lord for wonderful friends!
