Holiday in the Park | Mommy and Me Monday | 249th ed


Brrrr….it’s been cold here this week! Like below 20 at the bus stop a couple mornings. I am not ready for this cold at.all. Thankfully, it warmed up a little by Friday because we headed to a preview of Holiday in the Park at Six Flags.

N decided she wanted to check out as many rides as she was tall enough for with Mr. Serious. The rest of us headed to the train to visit Santa.

Of course, we had to stop and get a selfie. Poor B is there, but her sisters kept blocking her. Once the sun went down, it definitely got colder, but we stayed on the move and did alright. 

It’s November and we’ve already seen Santa, so we bypassed the line and went to write Santa a note. My little second grader is such an awesome writer and speller (mom brag), so she didn’t even ask for any help. She even helped E write a note to Santa, too, which was mostly a traced hand and some scribbles. Hopefully, Santa has a good translator.

These girls know a good photo opportunity when they see one. “Mom, let’s go in there. Take our picture with our friend.” You got it!

“Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?”

We walked through the peach-colored lights and peach shapes paying homage to Georgia’s roots en route to the live show, “Because It’s Christmas” in the historic Crystal Pistol Music Hall.

Two words “Tear Jerker.” It was such a cute show and not only did it keep us entertained, but the kids enjoyed it, too. B kept dancing during all of the songs!

Before everything started, we were able to catch the lighting of the Christmas tree up close and personal. The girls were actually standing right in front of the tree and they loved it.

It was a great evening out for our family because there was something to do for all of us. The rides were open and running, the shows were playing, letters to Santa were written and fun was had by all.

Holiday in the Park® runs now through January 4, 2015 on select days. Thank you to Six Flags over Georgia for hosting our family.

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.*
