Christmas in the Park
Every year in downtown San Jose they (who’s they? I don’t know. The City?) takes a park and turns it into a veritable Christmas wonderland filled with Christmas trees and cute, if odd, displays. We’d never gone, but decided to make it a field trip for our Moms Playgroup. So today we met up with some friends (and even got a surprise guest appearance from Hilary! WOO HOO! I need to magically run into you more often!) and braved the beauty and strangeness of Christmas in the park.
Some very pretty trees.
Crazy jungle tree. This one was a kid favorite.
And an Up tree. Very cute.
Bears, riding a carousel. Of course.
We all saw this and said, “What do frogs have to do with Christmas?”. Then we saw that it was called Caribbean Christmas, and said, “Oh!”. Then we thought a second more, and said, “What do frogs have to do with the Caribbean?” And we ended up more confused than we started.
Z and one of her BFFs.
Two adorable misses. And check out Z’s new coat, I love it. You can see it better in the following picture- just ignore her face, I’m not sure what she was doing.
And just in case you didn’t know:
Was that MY Hilary you ran into? I’m jealous!
And do they make Zoe’s coat in “big girl” sizes?
It was your Hilary (and mine. And Adam’s. And, I suppose, Justin’s.) It was awesome.
I wish they made Z’s coat in big girl sizes, I would LOVE one. The inside lining is hot pink.
The other, less-exciting, Hilary was playing room mom. What a fun outing!!!! We’re going tomorrow night. Drew’s playing there at 8 pm (kill me now). Super excited. Can’t you tell?
I would have been just as happy to see you there, Hilary, just not as surprised. 🙂
I think it would be cool at night, but there’s no way we’re trying that for another couple of years at least.
What a fun display in the park! Every time I see Z I think she’s the spitting image of you. You were about this size when Larry and I got married and I have pictures of you in our first apartment! Both girls are so darling!
