Just before Christmas my sister and I took some of the cousins to see the Elves at Gardner Village. We got there about 10 AM on a Friday morning and the place was E M P T Y! It was so nice. I felt like I could let kids run around without the constant fear of losing one of them. Personally, I think the elves look pretty creepy, but the kids enjoyed the hunt.
Parker was mostly bored during the cold (and I mean COLD) morning.
The four year olds.
This shop was decorated like a gingerbread house. It was so cute.
With only a minor (although it felt major at the time) meltdown around 11:30, the morning was wonderful.
