5th and 6th Days of Christmas: Christmas at the Park and Parade

Saturday, December 05, 2015
Happy fifth day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 20 days! Tonight we will go to Christmas at the Park to see some lights, go on a hayride and have some Christmas fun with our community!

This event has previously been held in a different venue so we were a little unprepared logistically. Parking and traffic was a nightmare so we got to the park later than we had hoped. Add to the fact that we had had two birthday parties earlier in the day and...well...we went. =)

We drive by this giant Christmas tree almost every day, so it was pretty cool to get to step inside it!

The inflatable obstacle course is always a hit!

And after a LOOOOOOOOOOONG wait, we got to go on the hayride all around the park. Thankfully Benjamin enjoyed this hayride a bit more than the last one we went on, though he was pretty done by the end of this long evening!

Thanks for persevering with us Herbst family!

Happy sixth day of Christmas Jackson & Andrew! Santa will be here in just 19 days! Santa heard that you love marching bands so he created a parade with bands and floats for you and the other children! Have fun at the Christmas Parade and don’t forget your letter for Santa!

The boys enjoy the bands, floats and vehicles of every kind, but their favorite part is the candy that some of the floats pass out!

They were ready at the end with their letters for Santa.

There he is!

Benjamin napped through the whole thing!

We made it home from the parade with enough light left to get our outside decorations up. Jackson and Andrew were happy to help daddy, especially because they got to climb on the big ladder!
