After a very long day of Violet being sick, we all went to the City of Portage’s lighting of the Christmas tree and lights. Thank goodness for ibuprofen.
The kids ended up having a great time. There were carolers and lots of people. After they lit the tree, there was another service at another park a half mile away, so we opted to stay where we were and look at the Christmas lights.
After a bit of posing in front of the lights, we decided to take the kids to a special chocolate shop for treats. We listened to Christmas music at home while the kids had their chocolates and danced.
It was a later night for them, but it was a lot of fun.
