The holiday season officially starts for my family Thanksgiving Day. The tree goes up and we’re planning holiday activities. My daughter lives in Virginia Beach, VA. A mile down the road is Hunt Club Farm. They sit on 23 acres and cater to children all year. Each year we take the grandchildren to see the Christmas displays. Their displays are amazing. They are full of automated elves, soldiers, reindeer and everything else you can image. It’s a child’s delight. Here are some of the displays from last season:
It’s a great place for photo opportunities as you can see. My granddaughter is not into picture taking for some reason. She doesn’t like to cooperate for the camera, so I’m hoping I can get a few good shots. This is my grandson last year in front of their Christmas tree. Amazing how much he has grown in a year. Precious I might add.
If the weather is nice we move on to the Petting Zoo. This is Mr. Llama. He was on display last year. The great thing about the Petting Zoo is you never know what animals you will come across. The have great displays there too. Last year they had an adorable little building that housed Santa. Xavier was a little shy, but he gave Santa his wish list.
We end our trip at the fire pit roasting hot dogs and making S’mores. They have a stand that sells the hot dogs and buns and everything needed for the S’mores. The roasters come with the package. You can pick up hot chocolate or apple cider to wash it down. If you live in the Hampton Roads area, plan a trip. It’s a great way to start the holiday season and makes great memories for the kids.
