My mom took us to a real farm in town. It was so great because Ammon is really in love with barnyard animals right now. He can "moo" and "neigh" and does so often when he sees cows or horses. Here's a short video of him moo-ing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0zC0pi-QaQ
|The cows were really loud and kind of scared the boys|
|Their favorite animal: the friendly barn cat|
Ammon has two new favorite hobbies: unloading the dishwasher (clean or otherwise) and flushing the toilet. He just loves doing what the big people do. I can tell he wants to be a big boy and talk so badly!
We went on the Candy Cane Express. It's a train ride with hot cocoa and popcorn served by elves. Santa and Mrs. Claus were also there. Quin pointed at Santa and said "that's the Christmas guy. He's wearing a costume." I'm not a fan of Santa Claus so I haven't actually taught him anything about Santa. Everything he knows comes from books, movies, and what other people say about it. I'm not anti-Santa, I just don't feel comfortable deceiving Quin, even if it's for fun.
Next was the city of Lebanon holidays at the park. It was also cold and wet.
We drove through the Pastega lights together.
We went to Storybook Land. I loved how it was a combination of the Pastega lights and Enchanted Forest. You walk through awesome animatronic stations that depict scenes from nursery rhymes and children's books. There were a lot of Disney sections and two huge train sets in the back. There was also a large Christmas village on display.
