Phil is coaching winter track this year so he has been swamped with meets and practices for that so I've been on my own with the kids quite a bit for the last month and a half. I've been trying to be sure we hit up all the super fun Christmas themed activities going on around town. We went to the mall and saw Santa one day, no pictures because I'm too cheap to buy them-just imagine Nora screaming and Pete looking awkward and you get the gist-not worth $30 to own. We also checked out the aquarium to see the scuba diving Santa it was really cool, but poorly set up. We waited to see him come in the aquirum and then were quickly pushed out of the way for people to come take pictures because they had been setting up a line without informing anyone who actually stood there and waited in the tunnel-hopefully next year they can learn to communicate and set it up better. Fun and we have a membership, but I'd not buy a ticket just for it.

My favorite thing to do though for our Virginia Christmas fun has been the light display down on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach. They have BIG lights set up all over in the sand and by the hotels and you drive on the boardwalk (its actually cement and really wide)
|Only in Virginia Beach do you get christmas lights with planes and beach scenes|
