Making it a tradition

December 13, 2009 · 1 comment

Last year we discovered a less crowded, more laid back place to visit Santa and decided to go again this year.  When we walked into the museum, we realized right away that they moved Santa to the front area (which, aside from basically advertising him being there, was a good thing – near bathrooms, more organized). We got into line right away, with promises to visit the Lego Castle display right after seeing the big man.

The boys were good waiting, although they hesitated walking up to him. Matt actually said “I wrote him a letter, I don’t need to tell him”. HUH?

Anyway, we got our pictures, the boys warmed up a little, and then we headed to the Legos.  To be honest, I was disappointed.  When they were hyping a Lego Castle Adventure, I was imagining a LIFE SIZE Lego castle that we could walk through. Don’t get me wrong – they had awesome Lego castles – but I was expecting MORE. BIGGER.  And according to other people around, I wasn’t the only one.  The boys liked it, though, and our museum tradition continues.

While we were putting Matt’s letter to Santa, the letter on top caught my eye and made me laugh.

It says: Dear Santa, I love you very much and please don’t put me on the naughty list. My heart is humongous. I hope you have a good day.

MIL said she was a disappointed in the lego exhibit too, the boys had fun, but they too figured there would be more and/or bigger things there. Glad you had fun otherwise!
