Acadian Village

When I was a little girl, my parents would take my sisters and me to see the Christmas lights at Acadian Village in Lafayette. One or two years, I sang with the Lafayette Children's Choir, and we performed there. I remember cold nights, hot chocolate, a little "church" and the Christmas lights. I remember an alligator of lights in the middle of a pond, and lots of little wooden bridges. I also remember the candy canes that lined the sidewalks of the village.

Last night Mike, Margaret, Mark, Anthony and I went to the Acadian Village, and everything I remember was still there. Add in a carousel, train, roller coaster and a flying carpet ride...and you've got a happy Anthony. He rode the carousel once and the train twice. Since when did Acadian Village go carnival?

We had a great time, and while it was cold, it wasn't unbearably so. We burned our lips on hot chocolate, Anthony ate popcorn, and Grandpa and I ate peanuts.

It's so wonderful to not have to worry about studying on the weekends, and to be able to enjoy these kinds of outings without thinking about school. I can tell you that I'm really going to enjoy this four week mental break!

Stay tuned for a fun "End of 2006" post that I'm working on. It won't be published until after Christmas, but I've been working hard on it!
