one last holiday activity: zoo lights

I know, right? Who goes to see Zoo Lights in January?

Well we did because we had some free tickets from Dan's work. I thought maybe that since the Cardinals game had just started that Saturday night at the zoo would not be so crowded--I thought wrong. The zoo was packed, the parking lot was near full to capacity. But we still enjoyed ourselves. We'd only been once before but that was when Sean was just a toddler, so it was a new experience for them. Being that it's hard to take pictures of lights with an amateur camera, most of my pictures are blurry, but you get the idea.




This guy's real.

This guy isn't.

This was probably my favorite tree in the whole place.




The butterfly's wings moved...so cool!







The cricket waved goodbye as you left the zoo. Fun cheap night out! =)

I have to do this next year. We have never been. How did you get your husband out of the house while the Cards were on? The only way my guy would have left would have been on a strecher! LOL

I have never been to the Zoo for Zoo lights. I went all the time as a kid and hated it, lol. I haven't even taken my kids there but I think next year I really should, it looks so cool and I LOVE those butterfly lights(awesome)!!!! You got some really great pictures, can't wait to see how you scrap them!

Yes, my Explorer fits in the garage. We are backing it in for now, it is a tight fit but just enough room to get around it. Definitely need to clean out the garage!

I love the zoolights. Your 12 for 12 are great. I love naps, but hate how I feel when I wake up. Take care, Tammi

I'm impressed! I didn't think they would be so cool. I guess we should have gone while we were down there. I know the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake wouldn't be that impressive. We miss the Phoenix Zoo. It's the best zoo, next to the San Diego Zoo that we've been to.

You have to pay to go to the zoo? That doesnt seem quite right? Or am I wrong.. anyway.. so cool! Ours does the lights too... I think they just stopped a couple weeks ago. Glad ya'll got a night out.. looks like a super good time!
