A Visit to Great Bend

Hi All!
Great Bend (about an hour south) has several fun Christmas activities, so we decided to go down and check them out.  It made the trip even better, when our niece Katie decided to go with.  We read that they had an ice skating rink, but on arrival it was a “faux” rink with some kind of slippery plastic rather than ice.  Oh well, the kids still had fun.

Then after dinner at Braums (I’m from Oklahoma so it’s my favorite fast food place) we visited the Christmas lights and Santa Claus.  Gabe was so excited to see Santa Claus and he told Santa all we wanted for Christmas (Thomas the Train tracks).  Then as he got down Santa tried to give him two candy canes, but Gabe only took one.  Santa then innocently says, “Don’t you want two candy canes?  You have two hands don’t you??  We all  start laughing and I tell him, “No, actually he only has one hand!!”.  Poor Santa, we threw him for a loop.  Actually, he was a great Santa and took it all in stride!

Here are some pics:
