In family/ thompson travels

lanier islands winter adventure

We had a blast this weekend visiting Lake Lanier Islands. We stayed in one of the Villa rooms on the water and took in the view along with all the festivity. We’ve been driving there for the Magical Lights of Holiday Nights for several years, but this year we decided to make a night a night of it.

All the holiday decor was beautifully done!

We arrived late afternoon on Saturday, just in time to watch the sunset on the lake while we cruised the Winter Adventure Park. The kids had a blast playing the artificial snow, eating hot dogs, playing putt putt and warming their hands by the fire pits.

Later on they did carnival rides and went ice-skating! Ella turned around just in time to catch Santa strolling the park. I didn’t get to see her face, but her hands over the mouth say it all. What a fantastic Santa he is!

The next morning we did breakfast with Santa, which was included in the Winter Adventure Family Package we purchased. It was a lovely buffet style breakfast complete with a waffle and omelet station. Santa was sitting center stage so there was no long wait to see him. Ella told him she wanted a “makin kitchen”… we are hoping that she’s referring to an easy bake oven!

Beau and I did not want to leave this beautiful view. This aztec cardigan is one of my favorites this season. You can shop it here.

I can’t believe Christmas is just 4 days away. This little trip definitely put us all in the holiday spirit!
