Santa & Ice Skating at Prasco Park

This past weekend was Prasco Park's Evening with Santa.  As in years past this is one of our favorite events.  This year it was a little different.  When we first walked in they had tables for letters with Santa.  

Holden and Rylan both wrote their wish list.  In this area, they had ice cream, hot chocolate, and Mrs. Claus was reading stories.  The kids were mesmerized by the "snow flakes" lights. Once we finished, we headed through the Nativity Walk where they told the story of Jesus' birth.   Next up, Santa.  

This was Leyton's first visit with Santa so I was just a little excited and apprehensive on how he would react.  He took a look 

and then was fine.  

As you can see, Santa's lap was full!  

I love this picture of Rylan talking to Santa.  It's almost as if he is saying, "Yes, sir, I've tried to be good!"  HAHA!  

Oh these three! And just when you thought our day was complete, we arrived at Candyland.  

Is this not one of the best sights.  The boys squealed with sheer delight.  There were cookies, candies, cakeballs, brownies, and a hot chocolate bar.  

A little boys dream!  Really it was fabulous!  From the decorations to the treats to the true meaning of Christmas, it was all conveyed in one evening.  As we finished the boys were all given Christmas books and and goodies bags. Kevin decided to take Leyton home while I took the boys ice skating. Somehow these two got up pretty easily and made their way around but there were a couple of falls.  

Thankfully, I was able to stay up the entire time and we had a blast.  We went back on Sunday to skate again but only lasted an hour because it was freezing!  

Another great family event shared with the boys at Prasco.
