To North Park, to North Park to Look at the Trains

Well...almost. We took one look at the line for the trains and opted out. Maybe next year. And, maybe before the last few days until Christmas.

I have to be honest. After spending a day with the kids in the car on Sunday to see my grandmother two hours away, I wasn't looking forward to a ride down to North Park and a trek through the last minute shoppers with two small children. Alas, I woke up this morning to Audrey (in the other room) excitedly asking Reid if he was looking forward to seeing the trains, Santa and Scrooge. Though we didn't get to see the trains nor Santa, we did get to hang out with some great friends, play in the fountain, watch some ducks swim around in their indoor pool and listen to Scrooge single out Reid amongst the many to give him a hard time.

At the beginning...everyone's in a good mood. Yay :) What you can't see behind me is Luna de Noche. On our way out I grabbed some chips and salsa to go. Green salsa. So tasty.

Isn't he a cutie?

See Scrooge in the house?

See Reid standing there (in the orange & white striped shirt)? Scrooge called him out and had him stand up. He asked Reid all kinds of questions and gave him a hard time about everything. Audrey stood up to help Reid and Scrooge asked, "is that your wife??" Pretty funny even if Reid didn't quite get it. After all the heckling, Scrooge gave Reid an autographed picture of himself. It's sitting on Matt's desk.

I have to admit that even after not going to bed till 3 am the day before(due to the wonderful hoiday shoppers at Target that think in some magical way the store cleans itself at night and there is no reason to put anything back from where it came!) I TRUELY enjoyed our day! Love You!

That was such a fun day. Reid was the star and Aydrey is the mother hen. Loved it! Let's do it again soon!
