Tonight we headed up the Bass Pro Shop to meet and see Santa. Gracie was really excited. She even said "The real Santa is here." We picked the perfect night. Although it's not even December yet, there was no line so we walked right up to Santa and got our picture with him. Granted Evie was a little bit excited but once we got up there, she got nervous. Presley, you know him, flat out said "no" to sitting on Santa's lap. Hence, the family pic of us. (Please excuse the lack of Christmas attire, the shirts have not yet arrived and also my son's black socks, he likes to pick them out himself.)
After Gracie told Santa that she wants a Princess castle with lots of Princesses, we walked around. We go to this place often just to get out of the house and walk around. I mean what's not to like when you can sit on cool things like this? And you get to see a huge fish tank for free! And pet bears. And ride elevators where you can push the buttons. And climb and play in tents. Presley loved the pink tent. I should also mentioned that his nails are painted the color of this tent. Oh, don't worry, the girls' are too. I guess Daddy painted everyone's nails today and Bub wanted his done too. Don't worry though, he wore a Yoda shirt to show he still has some masculinity. Monkey see. Monkey do.Gracie and Evie led Auntie Amy around like they owned the place. After a walk, we headed back over to the winter wonderland to check out and control the trains. We also colored some holiday pictures. They also have a free craft that kids can make!Gracie even played Daddy in checkers. It was the quickest game ever. Over in like 2 minutes! Then we decided to try out our shooting skills using the Red Rider Guns! Then we did our best to get some kiddie pics but as usual, it did not go so well. Bub wanted to hold the Cars tacklebox and wouldn't put it down. We left the store tired and ready for bed. Gracie was crying how she needed some Princess fishing stuff. I needed a Starbucks which I did get.
