One of the best days...

I just love it when we have one of those days where everything seems to fall into place perfectly. That happened for us over the weekend. We decided to drive up the mountain to Byrd's restaurant for lunch. (Glad we did because they closed the next day for the season and we had no idea) The drive was beautiful and the kids were in such good moods and had us laughing the whole way there. During the drive we talked about what our most memorable Christmas presents were and which present was our favorite of all time.

Once we got there Nathan's Aunt and Uncle just happened to be there eating also so we got to visit with them some too and they even surprised us and bought our lunch! The view at that restaurant is amazing and the food was great!

We then went home and watched some Christmas movies while Ryan napped. Then it was Christmas Parade time! I remember loving parades as a kid - then for the past few years they have just been ok for me. But now the kids are at a great age for them and they made it so much fun! Noah said his favorite part was watching the cars run over the horse poop after the horses went by. He thought it was hilarious! Ryan loved all the lights and Christmas trees. The parade did have 3 Santas though - luckily we played it off with Noah and he didn't ask too many questions.

Patiently waiting on the parade to start

She had 4 suckers during the parade :)

Getting lots of candy from cousin Sarah :)

After the parade we went to eat "chip and dip" as Noah calls it at the Mexican restaurant and home to watch a movie with Nathan once the kids were in bed. Then we just laid in bed and talked until 1:00 a.m. It was just one of those really good days.
