Adventures In Gingerbread Land!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Yesterday, we went on a birding adventure, but did some exploring on the way back.  We stopped in one of our favorite towns, Ellinwood, KS, and made a cool discovery -- there's a big Gingerbread Village in their park!  How exciting -- we just had to check it out!

"Oh ... I just can't even ..."
"Cam!  Check it out!  A whole train made out of gingerbread!"
"C'mon!  All aboard the Gingerbread Express!"

Rather than go on a train ride, Cam thought she should check on those candy canes ...

"Nope.  These are fake, Maggie."

... then noticed the Jack-in-the-Box.

"Hi, Jack.  My sister likes boxes, too."

Oddly enough, he didn't answer.  I get like that in boxes, too.

"Cam!  Over here!  A carousel with horses and stuff!"
"It's so pretty!!!"

We both love horses.  Too bad they weren't real ones.

THEN, I found Santa!

"I wonder what he's looking at?"

He was staring at something, but I have no idea at what.

Anyway, we struck one last pose before it was time to load back up into the HR-V:

"Do your best cool look, Cam!"
"Thank goodness Mom didn't bring the Santa hats!"

It was really fun exploring the Gingerbread Village.  There's always something exciting to see in Ellinwood!  We'll fill you in on more of our adventure as Mom goes through her photos!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
