The James Island Light Display

The happy faces say it all. We had just spent the previous evening at the light display at James Island Park in Charleston, SC. It's become a favorite tradition, up to see the lights, a night over in a fun hotel (more fun for the kids....less fun for the parents trying to force the kids to finally fall asleep), and an exciting drive home full of anticipation for Christmas the next morning.
The light festival is absolutely amazing, a child's holiday paradise. You can just drive all the way through the park and enjoy the light displays. But no visit is complete without a trip to Winter Wonderland and Santa's Village. While there you can roast marshmellows over numerous fire pits, brave scaling the climbing wall, visit Santa, ride a carousel, and take a journey through the lit-up forest in the Santa Train. So fun!

Waiting to see Santa. Notice Ellie's "worried" expression....and then.....

Santa!!! So okay, this picture is actually a few weeks prior to our Charleston Santa encounter. Yes, we made the poor child do it more than once. Three times to be exact and each time came with the same response. But I thought this one was classic, just look closer at Santa's expression. "What did I get myself into...."
