it was black friday.
we needed to get out of bv.
so i asked my friend to drop us off in lexington, a quaint town ten minutes away.
we had such a fun day.
i admit it was mostly window shopping, but we had some adventures along the way!

lexington had some great christmas decorations. they don't mess around.

probably one of the coolest bookstores ever.

layton finally got a haircut to fix the last haircut. so handsome.
before and after.

in one of the stores we were shopping at, the owner asked if we were going to light the town christmas tree.
what does that mean you might ask?
well every year, the townspeople gather at the stonewall jackson cemetery to kick off the christmas season.
everyone gets a book of christmas songs and a candle.
then you sing whilst walking down main street.
the party ends at a quaint park with a decorated tree planted right into the ground.
then the mayor comes and says a few words, ending with the lighting of the tree!
then everyone drinks hot chocolate and cider while singing more carols. so small town.
of course we had to do it.
love it.

town gathering together. loved all the bundled children.

it was so dang cold. and sushi sounded so dang good. and it was.

love to all.

That sounds like fun! I like Layton's hair cut.
That sushi looks so good!
