Journalling reads: We decided that during our trip to London, it would be fun to try and visit lots of different Santa’s Grottos. Of all of the different grotto’s we got to see, this one at the Westfield White City Shopping Centre was by far our favourite. It was called Santa’s Wish Kingdom and it was a really fuh 3D experience. On our first visit there actually weren’t any slots available, it looked so interesting we decided to visit the others and then come back later. It had been a really long day and by the time we got back there we were all feeling tired. There was still a fairly large queue, so we went and bought some yummy pretzels and pretzel dogs from a nearby stall and came back. We were not really sure what to expect. As the elves led up in we were sat down in front of a large screen. It ended up being a short animated film, about a snowman They had added in extra effects like blowing wind and fake snow on us to make us feel part of the experience. It was similar to the Bob the Builder film we had seen at Legoland. Lukas thought it was really cool. Then we got to go through to another room to see Santa and have some photographs taken. Both of the boys got these adorable little snowmen toys. We had to take this photograph from the upper level of the shopping centre as it was the only way to get it all into a photograph. 19/12/2009.
