Oh, how I love experiencing all of the “first” with baby Riley.
Over the weekend, Riley Blake met Santa for the very first time.
The Fair Oaks Malls in Virginia hosted an amazing event.
As we walked into BRIO Tuscan Grille we were greeted with goodie bags, then led to the seating area. We chose our spot then hit the buffet. Towards the end of our delicious meal Santa Claus came to each table to talk to us one on one. It was amazing.
It doesn’t stop there.
After all that, we then walked to the middle of the mall where we found Santa’s sleigh. Upon arrival, we registered Riley Blake. Then boom, a name tag slid out the machine with her Code Name to describe her job on the sleigh. I really loved how interactive this whole thing was. There was even a room that was snowing. It was like a maze. We went through each section of the sleigh to find something new, then alas there was Santa again!
Is this not the coolest thing ever? Once we were face to face with Santa yet again, Riley Blake got to sit in his lap and snap a picture with him.
While at the event, we had the opportunity to mingle with other families. It truly was a blast from the food, Santa, pictures, and making new friends! The goodie bag we received had a coupon inside to a place in the mall so there was even time for shopping afterwards.
Riley Blake really did enjoy herself.
