Santa's Village

Up in the White Moutains of New Hampshire is Santa's Village, which is where my Mom & I took the kids when she was out visiting. We set out really early one Sunday morning, as Jefferson is a 2-hour drive from my house. We arrived just before the park opened.

Santa's Village was beautiful. The scenery was gorgeous and the park was very well maintained. Christmas music played throughout the park, but I never heard the same song twice. It was a busy, but not at all crowded day. The weather was perfect; not too hot, or cold or windy or cloudy. A perfect 10.

I took over 200 pictures that day, but have selected a few, okay a little more than a few...

We went on rides:

Carter did not enjoy his first ride of the day:

Met Santa Claus:

Played reindeer games:

Found out how tall the kids were:

Posed for pictures:

Carter of course, managed to find some water to play in:

Played the Elfabet game and graduated from Elfabet University:

They had 26 Elves, one for each letter of the "Elfabet" hidden all over the park. Each person was given a card, which they punched when they found each elf with a letter. Once you found all the elves, you turned your card in for a certificate and a hackey sack. Another brillant idea. Kids and adults had fun finding the elves and punching their cards.

Even the trash cans were cute. You lifted the penguins' top hat to throw trash away. All the kids loved using them, so the park was spotless. Brilliant idea. I wanted to take one home with me.
