It’s not really an ordinary moment because it only happens once a year, but this week my photo is from our visit to meet Santa at the Keydell Garden Centre in Horndean, Hampshire. I’m not sure who was more excited about it – the kids or me! Last year the boys were a bit scared of things (especially Santa!) but this year they ran around patting the snowmen, hugging the figures of Santa and stroking all of the real animals that were part of the attraction. E didn’t even show a flicker of fear as we sat her on the lap of this Santa model, she just stared up at him with big, wide eyes.
But I couldn’t chose just one photo, as we had so many lovely moments…
After seeing the man himself, we were led into Santa’s toy workshop where they could pick their own presents. After being in there so long I almost gave up the will to live, the boys both ended up with racing cars and E got a pull along train.
We paid £9.95 each to visit Santa. The Winter Wonderland walk was free of charge. If you’re looking for somewhere to visit Santa, I think this was value for money. AND they had real reindeer. Although none of them had red noses, much to T1’s disappointment.
