December was so crazy that there was still one special Christmas activity that we hadn't gotten a chance to do - the Lights at the Zoo! We had plans to go one night before Christmas, but it ended up raining and then we ran out of free evenings. So we saved it to do when we got home from vacation. We went on the very last night and LOVED it! It wasn't crowded at all (perhaps because most people were ready to move on from Christmas) and we had a blast! It was fun to do one last Christmas hurrah before we started back to school the next day!
It doesn't matter how many times we come to the zoo - the kids ALWAYS have to "milk" this cow!!!
They had a big firepit going and you could buy stuff to make s'mores. I learned my lesson last year and brought our own grahams, marshmallows, and chocolate (and wire hangers) and we roasted to our heart's content - for free!!
The kids enjoyed some horsey-riding :)
One sweet picture...
...and the silly picture (look - even Caleb is making a silly face!)
and an attempt to get a picture of David & I....sigh....it's so hard to get a good one when all you have it little people taking them!!
