A few years ago we went to a living nativity and the kids loved it. They've been wanting to go again so I turned to the handy internet to find out when it would be going on. I couldn't find the one we had been to, but did find a different one. So, we bundled up and headed out for the evening. It was raining and a little chilly but well worth it. There were camels, donkeys, and horses as we walked the path to the city of Jerusalem. Then we got to the city we walked around and saw many different aspects of life during the time of Christ's birth. There were games, bread makers, leather workers, tax collectors, basket weavers, and even the three wisemen were there to talk to us. After we made it through the city, we made our way to a stable where Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus were peacefully waiting for us. It was very well done, and I think we all really enjoyed the evening.
To warm ourselves up afterwards we went to Starbucks. They have super yummy hot chocolate there! It was a great ending to our great evening!
