Enjoyed a lovely, festive time at Breakfast with Sint Niklaas at Riversdale House Museum in Riverdale Park, Maryland this past December weekend. Toddlers, preschoolers and elementary school-aged children (as well as their adoring family members, of course!), filled the room in anticipation of Belgian Waffles, bacon and, of course, a visit from Sint Niklaas!
