Unless someone shares with you, or you happen to be an outdoors person that shops at Bass Pro Shop you would never know there was a Santa photo opportunity.

Starting some time in Nov. Santa arrives and a small portion of there shop turns into a winter wonderland land.  Due to long to long lines there is additional actives for the young ones. There is coloring, block building, sand play, and even fish to look at. Additionally, they give you a complimentary kids meal pass to one of their restaurants. See below for a link to find out more info.

BEST OF ALL THE PHOTO IS COMPLIMETARY….if you need additional photos you can pay for additionally photos and are given the link to purchase online. Lines do get long so plan accordingly. You get one photo shoot for the family. I wasn’t a fan of our photo but I didn’t press the issue to have it retaken since I was so hot and hungry lol. Plus, I really only wanted Blaize to be in the photo but he was at his cranky hour and already not wanting to sit with Santa.  I also know we would revisit Santa another time to capture a photo alone of him.

Back to School Tears

I have a 5th Grader..         As if my son turning 10 this summer wasn’t hard enough, back to school starts  today. 

 

Back to school means summer is over in theory. I know most moms are excited for their children to go back to school, however, NOT ME! No more lazy mornings, no late night movies, no long vacations, no last minute trips. The school year for us means being on a schedule, packing lunches, sports practices, weekend games, tutor sessions and the awful dreaded HOMEWORK….

1st Day of 5th Grade-

For a week now, I have been holding back the tears every time we discuss the new school year but today I put on my water proof mascara knowing  that this is the last time I will be walking him into school as an elementary student, most likely the last time I will get to see his classroom on the 1st day of school, and the last time I will get to take his picture at his desk.

Where has the time gone I wonder. Wishing I just could turn back the clock or slow the time down. However, I know each new year, brings new life lessons along this journey.
