Once the choir's performance was over, we braved the chilly weather to see the sights. Katie was especially excited to go through the crafts tent. The weather outside was frightful (cold, at least), but the tent was so delightful!
Katie got to do all kinds of crafts, thanks to all the volunteers from local schools. She even got to make Sandy Candy (think edible sand art):
While Katie and I worked our way through the crafts tent, Brett and Ryan went exploring. They had so much fun roasting marshmallows, we girls had to give it a try, too.
The cold kept us from waiting around for the tree lighting or the fireworks, but later that evening at home, we could hear a POP-POP-POP outside. Ryan and I headed to our decktop and could see the fireworks from there! It was a nice surprise and a perfect ending to a fun night.
