Let it Snow at the Four Seasons Westlake!
Last weekend my cute crew and I headed to the Four Seasons Westlake for their annual ‘Let it Snow’ holiday event. A family favorite year after year, the ‘Let it Sow’ event features a holiday wonderland with festive bounce houses, train rides, professional photos with Santa, cookie decorating and more. Oliver went completely nuts for the “More” portion: ELMO and COOKIE MONSTER. Need I say more? (Literally). No seriously, brilliant move on the event team’s part— nothing says holiday happiness more than those two characters. They don’t even need to be dressed in an ugly holiday sweater. That’s how loved they are.
When you walk into this winter wonderland at the FS Westlake, you’re greeted by two giant reindeers and signs telling you which way the fun is. Want to decorate cookies? Head in with Cookie Monster and Mrs. Claus to decorate your own cookie. We loved this! The train ride was also a huge hit – with the beautiful lights dangling above and even a visit at the end from The Grinch. The “Frozen” themed bouncie house was also a huge draw for my littles. Speaking of draws, it wouldn’t be the holidays without some “spirits.” The full bar made it especially “toasty” for me and Peter and the other parents trying to wrangle their littles. (I appreciate an event where I can see another mom, wine and toddler in hand and we have that automatic “I feel you sister” moment). We also made a pitstop at the S’Mores firepits – because who can resist roasted marshmallows with chocolate before heading to dinner! (Hey, ‘tis the season!) We ended the afternoon with a delicious early dinner in the lobby lounge where we joined friends for (some more wine) and a yummy Italian Buffet. We literally had to yank Oliver from the hotel; there is a beautiful winter village train set set up in the lobby and of course, my Thomas obsessed boy(s) loved watching this.
Honestly, this was a perfect weekend afternoon. The Four Seasons Westlake has always been a favorite of ours. It’s like a little getaway only, it’s just a few miles from our house. I love how festive and fun the Let it Snow event is and know we’ll make this a tradition every year!
