I got a ride to work and then Heath picked me up after picking up all the kids and we continued on to Crown Center. We parked and changed the kids into red and green clothes then headed in. We me up with our friends Jon, Briana and Olive outside by the giant wood toys.
We only let the kids play for a minute before rushing them into santa. The line was pretty short when we got there and we got right over to santa.
The big kids were excited but Bean did not want to leave her mom.
Little Olive did great.
Then we let the kids play in Crayola land for a bit.
Bean liked this a lot more.
After a bit we rushed on to dinner at Fritz.
Bean was being a grouch and none of the kids ate much but they all liked to watch the trains.
and unload the trey.
At the end of dinner Lily started screaming for an unknown reasons so I took her outside and everyone went to see the gingerbread. Once she calmed down we joined them.
After gingerbread we checked out the toy store.
and then the Crayola shop.
Our friends headed home and we headed back out to the big wooden toys and let the kids play a bit.
We had a lot of fun and took some family pictures before heading home.
On the way we drove out of the way a bit to see Christmas lights. We got the kids in bed then Heath and I headed down to the shop to work on a quick and easy secret project for Bean’s gift.
