On Saturday, I really wanted to do something fun and out of the house. We've had sick kids all taking turns for what feels like forever and just a lot of tasks to manage. We went downtown to ride the carousel and look at the lights and happily it was also the tree lighting celebration so there were booths with crafts and hot chocolate as well as live music. We browsed a toy store and watched the big evergreen get lit. It was a really fun evening, one I think we will purposefully repeat next year. I can't wait to get our tree and decorate it!
