It was one of the prettiest displays I've seen in a long time. The evening was mild (meaning in the 50s. For us wimpy southwest residents that is still considered cold). We walked up and down the winding paths, sharing in the squeals and excitement of our kids as they saw all the colors. At the end of the path, in a high back chair, sat a jolly man in a red suit and white fluffy beard. Although our 9 year old could tell "he's not the real Santa. His beard is sooo fake.", our 3 year old was happy to share her desire for a Tangled doll with the beloved stranger. After freezing the moment with smiles and a flash, the kids were given a surgery treat and we were on our way.
It was a beautiful evening to kick off this beautiful season!
