On Christmas night, Pete, Ella and I braved the cold and wind to experience Bentleyville, a display of innumerable lights along the Duluth harbor. While we were dating, Pete & I started going to Bentleyville. At that time, the smaller (yet still incredible) lighting attraction was outside a small town near Duluth in a family’s yard. It’s grown well beyond that now with free cookies & hot chocolate, fires in barrels for making free smores, and of course, they big guy from the North Pole. With all the distractions, Ella didn’t mind the cold a bit! She was quite a trooper and we were able to hustle through nearly the entire little city of lights in about 20 minutes.
Daddy started by pulling her in her new sled, but then we realized all the paths were cement and very well shoveled. The sled went back to the parking lot.
Ella met a penguin!
