This was Ben's third such excursion but it was the first time for Chloe. After having spent many years doing the same thing with Adrian & Lorelle when they were younger, Lorelle rejoined the group for this year.
Have to admit, we haven't seen Chloe quite so excited. We walked a number of Courts that had several houses lit up. It was a lovely, warm evening so conditions for getting out of the car and having a stroll were just perfect. Met Santa outside one house and he kindly posed with the kids (big & little)
Apart from the Santa, some people had added that little bit extra, such as decking out the family car to represent Santa delivering presents. This was a nice touch, even after we explained to Ben & Chloe that, "no, the presents aren't for you."
Lots of lawn furniture also featured as well as thousands of Christmas lights - which, unfortunately do not photograph real well.
All in all, it was a very pleasant outing and Chloe in particular slept soundly that night - we must have really tired her out in spite of all the excitement.
