light up downtown!

So, every year on the Friday before Thanksgiving, North Wilkesboro has a celebration downtown to light up the Christmas lights.  There are bands, dance groups, singing groups and the like for entertainment; hayrides; and of course Santa!  There are also vendors selling food, and the shops have a contest for the best window decorations.  Nick and I took Max and joined my parents and sisters...and we had a blast. We started off by visiting our favorite coffee shop in the world (which also happens to be in downtown North Wilkesboro)- Talia Espresso- and then we walked around and enjoyed the lights and entertainment.  The biggest hit with Max, however, was the North Wilkesboro Fire Department allowing him to check out one of their trucks.  He got to sit in the driver's seat and explore a little on the outside of the truck, too.  We all had so much fun!
