Thursday night was one of those days. Not the kind that you begin to describe with a big "ugh", but rather one of those perfect and magical days where you turn to your husband and say "This is what being a parent is all about."
Thursday we had planned to take the kids to Edaville USA. It is a small train centric amusement park for little kids. During the Christmas season they have an event called the Festival of Lights. It is a 20 minute train ride through the property with 7 million lights to look at. There are also some carnival type rides for kids too.
It could not have been a better family night. Leah was awesome. That is always a concern when planning something like this--will Leah be good during it? She was so good. We dressed her nice and warm and Pat took this picture before our evening started. It may be one of my favorite photos of her of all time.
Pat snapped this photo on the train with his cell phone.
After the elephant ride and playing with the train tables in the meeting hall, the boys rode the carousel one more time. We were all so happy as we left the park. I am glad we brought them there because it was an experience I'll never forget in such a good way.
