Last night, we took our entire family to First Baptist McKinney to take part in their Christmas Journey.
It is a real life re-enactment of Christ’s life – birth to resurrection. You can drive through in the comfort of your own car or you can ride through on a hay ride with free hot chocolate and blankets.
My boys LOVE it. We went last year and took our own vehicle. This year, my boys asked to take the hayride so we did. I will recommend sitting on the right side of the hayride (the passenger side of the towing vehicle), especially with little ones, as most of the scenes are on the right side of the vehicle.
I honestly think my boys learn more about the story of Jesus’ life during those short 45 minute trips than they do the rest of the year put together. There is just something about seeing it come to life.
So load up your family and head over. It’s completely FREE and open December 10 and 11 from 6 – 9 p.m.
Here’s a summary of last year’s event:
