Zoo Lights!

 Tonight we decided to make good use of our last month of zoo membership and see the Christmas lights! It's something we've never done before as a family and we were all looking forward to it!

At first my camera didn't quite like the lights...

It was pretty cold so we all shared some hot chocolate to warm up!

Every year the zoo has community tree decorating and lots of businesses and different group decorate hundreds of trees lining the paths of the zoo.

Eliana's into this toothy cheesy grin lately:) It's so funny!

My boys! Man, they look so big here!

I have no idea who these people are but the lights are pretty:)

Our favorite zoo!

The Dinosaurs Alive exhibit is coming back to our zoo this spring so they had a cool section of dinosaur lights to promote it!

The boys begged me to take a picture of the volcano (last pic) and this one:)

One of the last things we did was check out the laser lights show! It was really cool. It was on a HUGE screen and they had animations to one of my favorite songs, "I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas" and some other cool stuff. It turned out to be our favorite part of the night!

It took forever to get out of the zoo as it was PACKED with hundred and hundreds of people and lots of traffic. We even got flicked of by a crazy angry guy who didn't want to let anyone in the car line. Aren't people so wonderful sometimes?

Aside from crazy dude, it was a really fun thing to do as a family and a fun way to end our Saturday!
