Isla Meets Santa
Although I love being a dad every day, yesterday was one of those landmark “dad moments.” That’s right, we took Isla to meet Santa for the first time. The Man took a few moments out of his busy schedule to take a picture with our little girl. Man, she’ll be dropping his name into conversations for months! “Well, you know I actually MET the guy…” And so forth.
We also visited the Santaland village at Macy’s in Downtown Minneapolis where the theme was “A Day in The Life of an Elf.” Isla’s bright eyes and visible excitement completely distracted me from pointing out that these elves need to stop joking around and step up their game if they’re gonna be ready by Christmas Eve. Just sayin’.
Later, we took some time to walk around Macy’s and bask in the glow of the holiday decorations (despite Macy’s strict “No Basking” policy.)
Definitely a perfect day out with the family.
