Christmas!

That's what The Baby calls Santa. Christmas.
There's a little amusement park in Colorado that's a tradition for us to go to every year. Santa's Workshop.

On our way there, we had to stop and let the kids roll down a hill.
Hey, we don't have hills in Kansas!



(My camera battery died this day so most of the photos were taken with The Boy's point and shoot camera. Oh and we went two days, so there are different sets of clothing.)





The Girl on top of the highest ferris wheel in the world!


The Baby was completely obsessed with the train.
We had to ride it several times.






When it came time to meet Christmas (Santa) The Baby was too scared.
So we got no pictures of him in Christmas' lap.

Looks like fun. Kiddo has already been saying "I want that for Christmas". He asked to go to Aunt Irene's house the other day since that is where Santa shows up (at the annual Christmas Eve party).

We had a Santa's Village near Chicago. Not anymore. I loved it as a kid.

Wendy said...

No screaming Santa pictures? That's just not right. That's something that should be in everyone's photo album.

Amy said...

What a fun place! I love Christmas, and since I am also from SoCal, was a big fan of Santa's Village, LOL!!
One of my hubby and I's first Christmas card pictures was in front of a giant tree there. I remember going up in August or September to take that photo. Good times...thanks for the trip down memory lane Beki!

what fun! Does the little guy like Thomas?

Mine was obsessed with trains from 18 mo - age 5. We used to visit the Day Out With Thomas when it passes through each year. It's a fun day out for fans

Love that place. We went there as children and I took my kids there a couple years ago. One wouldn't go on anything but the peppermint slide and the other rode the rollercoaster three times in a row.
