Christmas Reflections is something the park does every year around this time. Most of the summer stuff at the park is shut down, but you can take a wagon tour through the park, do a little shopping, make crafts, sip cider and even visit Santa.
I was also excited that Ian brought along his camera and newly-replaced lens to take fancy photos. I love having a professional photographer for a boyfriend. That said - Ian is a photojournalist, and therefore is all about the candid shots. Be prepared for a lot of derpy photos of me (which is my default/ neutral look, unfortunately).
Ian took ~60 photos, so I've narrowed it down to my favourite 23. Yup. 23. This is a picture heavy post.
We started things off with a little stroll down 1920s street, where we wished the Capitol Theatre didn't falsely advertise that they were showing Clara Bow films. Jerks.
Then, we popped into a store to make a Christmas craft.
|Scissors are hard, I need to concentrate.|
|I was wearing a $9 Christmas sweater and my great-grandma Callsen's brooch.|
|Socializing. Just not with each other.|
|EHRMAHGERD SERNTAH CLERSE!|
|Look at the mini tree with its ittle topper! SO CUTE.|
|More derpy pointing action. Aw yeah.|
|I'm not the only weirdo.|
|Writing my letter to Santa, asking for a muff, petticoat and a 54 convertible too (light blue!)|
|These two are adorable.|
|I call this one "The Canadian Flasher"|
We ended the night with a bonfire and a wagon ride tour through the park.
