On Grammys and their Grandsons…Santa and Five Guys Fries

Q. What could be more fun than a visit with Santa?

A. Lunch at Five Guys, of course!

With that in mind, we packed up Bennett one lovely morning during my visit to Virginia, and headed to Yankee Candle, where we were to find a veritable wonderland of holiday fantasy and fun, with bubble snow every four minutes, lighted holiday scenes, an electric train that ran above our heads, and Santa himself presiding over the whole show.

Now, Bennett had been to see this very Santa last Christmas, but he was just a wee lad then. So, we were not sure what he would think of the jolly fat man this year. And, although he was not a big fan, Bennett humored us and sat on his lap without tears, and even let Santa read him a bit of a Christmas story.

After visiting with Santa, we climbed back into the car for the short drive to Five Guys…Bennett’s favorite place for french fries.

Truth be told, though, it’s not the fries that Bennett loves ~ it’s dipping them in little cups of catsup that makes this boy happy.

So, as Mama and I enjoyed our burgers, Bennett happily dipped his fries, and all of us were happy as can be!
