Because she gets SO excited over the simplest string of lights on an outside tree, when we heard that Duluth was opening up Bentleyville in the Bayfront area, well, we knew without a doubt we'd be there on Friday night. And we made it. It was amazing. Simply amazing. I cannot believe how much work went into the beautiful light display, and all the hard work the volunteers did (because it is all volunteer work!). Free cookies, cocoa, coffee, marshmallows to roast over open-pit bonfires, and of course, Santa. Beautiful lights, and Santa. And don't forget his crew of trusty Reindeer - all walking around in costumes. And Frosty.
To say Keifer enjoyed it is an understatement. I almost think it was TOO much for her to take in. She didn't really know where to go first! LOL. However, I can say for sure that going into a "tunnel" of lights was by far her favorite part of the whole experience. To be surrounded by the lights was as amazing as anything will be for her.
Away in a mangerMama's girl! She wanted Mama to carry her quite a bit- which is hard when you're hauling around 38 pounds of active girl!
