Santa's Wonderland

December 23, 2010

Jonathan and I, along with Rachel and Erik, went to Santa's Wonderland in College Station, TX and it was so much fun!  We're for sure planning on taking Georgia next year.  It will probably be major sensory overload for a 7 month old but I'm sure she'll enjoy it for a bit :)

The drive there...Erik had fun with the camera.

The line to get into Santa's Wonderland.

In front of us:


and, behind us!


There was an "old town" area with little shops (where I found the Baylor Christmas ornament) that sold "old-timey" candy, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. They even had a fire pit where you could roast your own hot dogs and marshmallows.



The entrance:



Don't Mess With TEXAS!



The layout of Santa's Wonderland is set up in a way that you either drive through to see all of the scenes or you can take a hay ride or a carriage ride.  We took the hayride option.  Here were some of the best scenes of the night!

ON the hayride!














We had SUCH a great time!
