Christmas Eve was awesome! We had mineral baths, massages, and went swimming, and then got all dressed up for dinner at The Porterhouse followed by the lights show at Garvan Garden! It was such a great day and lots of memories were made!
Hot Springs is sort of stuck in time. Everything is clean but super old. It’s neat though. The kids were so interested, and it really does feel like you’ve traveled back in time.
Ms. Susan was Rara and Noelle’s bath nurse. She helped them with their hot springs mineral baths and was such a sweetie!
The cup song and warm winter sun!
Nap time which was glorious!
We loved this huge ginger bread house in the lobby. They told us they build a new one every year. It was incredible. The back is a true doll house with characters in each room. I’ll post a YOLO pic of that!
Aren’t these layers amazing!?!
Garvan Woodland Garden was magical on Christmas Eve! We had the most wonderful night strolling through the lights! I don’t know how Rara found it, but I’m so glad she did!
Poppa and Rara sharing a Christmas kiss!
Each section was themed with a season of the year. The grand finale was winter/Christmas! Here we are goofing off heading into fall!
We loved all the beautiful butterflies and flowers in the spring section. The train was so interactive! The girls got to ring the bell and run all through it as it belted out lots of cool sound effects.
This scene was breathtaking! The walk through the garden was one mile, and the entire trail was covered with lights from start to finish. We absolutely loved it and had the best time together!
As we were leaving the gift shop at the end of the night, I spotted this little signature on the table! Although I didn’t let her know, it melted my heart. Our girls have been so good this year, even though Rose finds herself in predicaments from time to time! This year was truly the most excited I’ve ever been about waking up on Christmas morning in my life. I don’t think I slept a wink. We couldn’t wait to open our gender reveal card, which was the most exciting Christmas present ever!
