Christmas Break Adventures

Christmas Break, I love you! Having a two week Christmas Break, is definitely one of the perks of Jason's job. In some ways, it makes up for some of the very long hours he has to work during the year. This year we did not travel too far on break, and so we were able to do some fun activities around the Little Rock area with the kids.

Garvan Gardens

We have always heard really wonderful reviews of the lights here. Garvan Gardens is located in Hot Springs, and we were able to go for a visit on our way to see some cousins in Hot Springs. The kids had a great time. Their favorite item was the train. We spent at least 20 minutes just at that spot! We will definitely be making a return trip to this beautiful exhibit!

Little Rock Trolley

Riding the trolley around town is a favorite past-time for our children. They love it, and we love it because it is so easy and cheap. We can ride for at least 45 minutes for a grand total of $2. Even better though is Holly Trolley Day when the ride is free and includes candy canes and songs. The kids loved every moment of this fun ride!

I love all the family activities that we do around Christmas. I hope the kids will look back on these times when they are older. I treasure these moments in my heart because I know they are growing up too fast!
