That’s right…Santa came to visit the kids of our town on Saturday, and his vehicle of choice was a firetruck. How exciting to combine two of Adam’s favorite things!
We talked about it a LOT before hand, so that maybe Adam wouldn’t be scared to death of Santa. He did remarkably well, only saying, “I’m shy” once when we told him to sit on Santa’s lap. He did NOT talk to Santa, but he didn’t cry either.
After sitting on Santa’s lap, there were treats and crafts. We stayed to color a picture before going home for nap time.
There weren’t a ton of kids there, but I’m so glad that our little town of 200 keeps doing things like this. They have a wildly successful Easter Egg hunt every year, the volunteer Fire Dept. joined with the library and our daycare last fall for an event at the fire station, and in the summer, Watermelon Day is a great celebration. Quite honestly, our town doesn’t have a lot going for it…the school is gone, the restaurant is gone, and main street is pretty empty…but I’m thankful that we have these activities for the kids!
