Last week we continued one of our favorite Christmastime traditions: visiting the Cincinnati Zoo for the Festival of Lights.
The kids and I visited the zoo back in early November, when they were already getting ready by stringing lights in all the trees.
O. has been asking when we will get to go back and see Santa's reindeer ever since. The mild weather this year meant we got to enjoy everything without dealing with too much whining about how very "chiw-y" N. was, at least until the end, when it was time to head home anyway.
O. was literally bouncing with excitement the whole walk in from the parking lot,
so I'm amazed that we got him to stand next to the
gigantic Christmas tree long enough for this shot.
Once we started seeing the animal shaped light creations, O. kept asking to get a picture with them. I was surprised, because he lately does not like to cooperate with posed pictures.
Then I figured out that he had a plan for a whole series.
N. is not in on the act quite yet.
|Ah, now she's got it.|
What fun we had together!
