Spending Thanksgiving week in Pensacola means that we always miss the fun Christmas parades and tree lightings back home, so this year I asked Karyn what fun things could we do around Pensacola. She had never been, but had heard about this downtown Pensacola Elf Parade. We now know that this simply means Santa and a few elves walk around a block and the kids walk with them. But what we saw wasn't what was important. What was important was spending fun quality time together as a family. That we did. We all went to dinner, then headed over to the parade.
Then they had SNOW! Well Florida kind of snow (Soap Bubbles!) The kids loved it!!
Alex loves her Papaw!
Riley liked the view too, but his legs kept going to sleep.
Afterward we wandered around downtown for a little bit and then stopped in a bakery for yummy cupcakes and hot chocolate. Not what we expected, but a successful evening to say the least.
