Every year Crown Center puts sets up a play area with large wooden 'toys' for kids to play with. It was pretty cold out when we went this year, but now that both are old enough to run, drive, climb, jump, and play on all of the equipment it was both a lot of fun, and a lot of work, often with one of us chasing one kid in one direction with the other going in the opposite. When things got to be too cold, then we went outside for ice cream, because that's what you do. The kids got to sit on Santa's sleigh, and even posed for a couple of pictures by the countdown.
Asher was less than cooperative for pictures.
