There is a really cool place here that is unique, boutique type stores and restaurants. And they are hosting a Christmas in July celebration today and tomorrow! The cutesy kids clothes shop had all their summer stuff half off. I got Katie a couple dresses for next summer! And they had face painting (we didn't do that!), a train area with toy trains, a craft (Katie made a sock puppet!), firefighters were giving away cute little fireman hats and crayons and coloring books, and they had Christmas movies playing for the kids! My mom met us there for lunch and we had a great time (minus a large-scale meltdown by Miss Priss)! Oh! And the jolly man! Of course Santa was there...all decked out in his summer gear! Katie screamed anytime he came close :) Probably didn't help that it was close to naptime! But Santa was giving the kiddie a Hawaiian lei...Katie did enjoy that part! And the funny thing was that there was a family eating there with a HUGE dog (English Mastiff - like ENORMOUS), and Katie went right up to it and wanted to pet it and play with it. She will do that, but a Santa sighting is traumatic! And I sure wish I had remembered my camera...oops! This phone pic of Santa will have to do. I sure hope they continue doing this every year - it was so fun!!
