Our road trip continued on to Fredericksburg, which is known as a romantic getaway or girl's weekend kind of a town.
Obviously with my parents and 3 kids in tow, we weren't experiencing Fredericksburg the way it's intended.
Instead of spending the day touring wineries, lunching at small cafes, and/or shopping in fun little boutiques, we:
watched animated, dancing salsa bottles
had my dad babysit on park benches as my mom and I ran in-and-out of stores in record time
and posed for pictures with giant cowboy M&M's.
(Do you see the sign advertising the chocolate covered bacon? We didn't try it, but a couple passing by told us it was really good.)
The whole family did spend a really enjoyable hour in one of the Christmas stores.
And the term 'really enjoyable' isn't laced with one drop of sarcasm.
Christmas decorating genes run strong in this family!
