Solvang

I absolutely love this little town about 30 minutes away from where we live. It's a Danish settlement that's kept it's heritage and has some awesome little shops and restaurants that you could spend a week exploring! We decided to head out there late this morning to do a little early Christmas shopping and had as great time, as usual. You feel like you're stepping out of California and into a little danish town in the old world. Here are some pics from our day...
Here's Moira stopping to make a wish at the fountain. Guess what she wished for. She said, with all the seriousness that a 4 year old can muster, "I wish we could go to Texas!" Us too, kiddo... us too.

Isn't this hilarious? Ian insisted on trying the mustard on his french fries - and can you believe he liked it? What a brave little boy!

My other "little boy" was not brave enough to try the mustard, but he did try a new beer from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Are vikings supposed to be this cute?

We're trying to enjoy every bit of California before it's time to go, and today was a good start. Next weekend is "Danish Days" in Solvang, so we may just end up back there again soon! And, I'm sure many more pics will follow here! :)

We loved Solvang, too. It's very cool. Did you hike that trail to the waterfall? Wish we could explore it with you but we are exploring on our own this weekend :0) We'll have to tell you all about it.

Thanks for sharing, Janelle, everyone looks great! Give those beautiful babies big hugs for me! Oh heck, give one to Collin too! ;-)
