Zoo Lights

Tonight we went to the Zoo for their annual Zoo Lights. They line all the walkways with rope lights, cover tons of the bushes in lights, set up moving light displays and have light sculptures all over. It's like a Christmas light factory exploded! I loved it!!

It was 23 degrees outside so it was quite chilly. We double layered the kids under their coats (Xander thought it was hilarious to wear jammie pants under his jeans) and then added jackets, hats and gloves.

We had a great time! Gabriella thought it was fun to be a dragon (what she calls it when her breath looks like steam). Xander had a meltdown in the middle of it so we warmed up in the gift shop before finishing walking through the rest of the zoo. When we went inside the aquarium my glasses fogged up so badly that I had to take them off and carry them for a few minutes to warm them up before I could wear them again! Then we headed home for some popcorn and hot cider (thank you for the packets you sent the kids, Cousin Jessica! ).

Gabriella's "hat hair" was hilarious so we took a picture. Then Xander wanted to have a picture taken too.
