One of our favorite family holiday treats each year is visiting Winter Wonderland. When I was a child, a local family owned a nursery and put on an amazing Christmas display at the holidays. There were barns full of snow, glistening lights, and hundreds of moving figurines. There was also a concession stand, old fashioned candy shop and a holiday ornament store. It was truly magical. We went every year and then went out for cocoa and donuts. It is one of my favorite childhood memories.
When my oldest was born, we took him to see the display on the last year it was open. The family then retired, sold off the items and closed up shop. Fortunately, the city purchased some of them and now they are displayed in a local museum each year. The display is much, much smaller than it used to be (when I was 4 it seemed to stretch on for miles) but I still love that I can take my kids to enjoy a little of the magic I experienced as a child. Today I am sharing a few shots from our recent visit to Winter Wonderland.
