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.
