With a night just me and the kids, we decided to venture out to Allerton Park for their tree lighting event.
1. I should have remembered how long and far off the beaten path Allerton truly is. Monticello is not far. Allerton is.
2. I should make sure when we drive these distances the activity we're going to is at least as long as the drive ONE WAY.
3. I should be thankful my kids were awesomely behaved even though it was not the most exciting of holiday events, and that nobody kicked a candle on the ground over.
Highlight of the night for the kids? Finding Cracker Barrel-esque chairs to rock in near the parking lot! Easy to please!
