Holiday Stroll at Riviera Village

Before I post these pictures from last night, I have to go a little off topic for a minute and say that this is just one of the reasons I love living where we live. There are sooo many fun family/kid friendly things to do. Especially around the holidays. Prior to moving to Southern CA, I wouldn't have thought it would be like this, and I'm just so glad that it is!

Last night, there was a "Holiday Stroll at Riviera Village". Fake snow, Santa, Christmas Carolers, free food and drink samples, shopping, horse-drawn carriage rides and tons of families there to enjoy it all. We met Joli and Sawyer there; Sawyer and Aidric just love each other and it is so sweet to see them interact. After sitting on Santa's lap and getting a sucker, they just hung out and danced for awhile. Wish I had had the camcorder there to record the moves a little better!

This is how we started the night. Looked promising, huh?

Jules, against her will, sat on a Santa's lap for a quick picture. Aidric wanted nothing to do with Santa and cried when I put Juliet there.

However, once he realized there was a sucker in it for him, he decided to give it a go. I wanted a picture of them together, but Juliet was already back in the stroller and it was just too much effort to get her back out.



Not enjoying the snow as much as the boys did

Looks like a neat time!
Juliet's many faces crack me up!
