We headed up to Duluth to celebrate a special first birthday, and it just so happened to also be the Grand Opening Night of Bentleyville, USA!
It was so pretty!
And perhaps, a new family tradition was born?
We brought along a donation of non-perishable food items,
and then stepped inside of Bentleyville, USA, which, amazingly, is free to the public!
Complimentary cookies & hot chocolate (WHAT! more FREE FAMILY FUN!) were passed out to everyone who wanted some...
and we started along the journey.
There were so many neat light up displays...
Like this one that reminded us of great friends -
Santa & Mrs. Claus parachuted in, though we missed that part.
Mrs. Claus did tell the kids all about it.
But even with those cool stories, someone was a little skeptical of her.
In addition to getting to meet Mr. & Mrs. Claus -
There are also other cool stops along the way -
Including the Marshmallow Hut!
FREE marshmallows and sticks for roasting over one of the many fire pits that were going?
Ah, a bonfire on a crisp winter night.
We all enjoyed walking through the various light displays.
Bentleyville, USA ~ Definitely worth the trip!
