One of our local dairy farms has an annual holiday event they call “Joy to the Herd”. We met some friends there last weekend and Lauren had a blast. They take you on a tour of the farm including the milking facility and then they have a video on how the milk get processed at the distribution plant. After the tour, they drop you off at a big red barn where you meet Santa and Roxie, their cow mascot. Everyone gets a chocolate milk and they have crafts and face painting. Outside the barn, they have a big pile of snow and a snow slide for the kids. Lauren’s favorite part was the slide and throwing snowballs…remember, we don’t see snow around here!
Yesterday evening we went to an outdoor mall with a very festive Christmas feel. All the trees are lit up and they have carriage rides, Santa and a mini light show. They were having a special event last night and Lauren got to take a pony ride. At the end of night I asked what what she liked the best and this was it!
And here she is with the big man himself…she sure LOVES Santa!
