One of the first things we discovered was that they had free pony rides. Lucy has been quite fond of horses for awhile but I still wasn't sure that she would like to actually ride one. I couldn't have been more wrong. Not only did she ride the horse she had a big smile on her face too.
The kids all loved the lights and spent a lot of time bouncing around excited at all there was to see.
Zane also got to ride a horse tonight. Andrew was too old but Zane was pretty excited to give it a try. He did absolutely great!
We all found Bruce the Spruce quite amusing. He told corny jokes and Zane laughed at each and every one.
Two characters were walking around tonight. A train conductor bear and Frosty the snowman. Zane loved them and cheerfully got his picture taken. Andrew determined that he was too old for that type of stuff. It was too embarrassing to get your picture taken with characters. The girls were utterly and completely terrified. They both clung to Eric and I the entire time. Glad we haven't tried Disneyland lately. It would be such a bummer!
The last thing we did was take the little train ride. It was quite short but the kids all loved it. Other than the freezing weather it was a perfect evening with the family.
