Last Wednesday night, I took my family (minus Kurtis because he is a party pooper!) to ZooLights. ZooLights is an annual event at Hogle Zoo that runs through the month of December. The zoo gets decked out in holiday lights and animated light displays. It is awesome! This year was Jeremy's first time going, and we let him take his best friend along too. Jeremy's favorite part was the super rich, chocolatey deep-fried s'mores. I think that was his friend's favorite part too, but I didn't get a chance to ask him. For me, it is a tough decision, but there is one light display that I like best. It shows two frogs and a fly. One of the frogs sticks his tongue out to get the fly and ends up hitting the other frog in the face!
It was really hard to take steady pictures of the light displays, but sometimes the ones that don't turn out are the coolest.
Me, Jeremy, and his friend stood in line to see Santa.
Jeremy and his friend got to write a quick letter to Santa while they were waiting. Then Santa read them while they were sitting with him. Afterwards, they got to mail their letters in a special mailbox. For each letter that goes into that mailbox, Macy's donates $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, one of my favorite charities. I think there is a mailbox at Macy's too.
Comet and Vixen were there too.
We had a really great time! If you want to check it out, click on the next picture for the ZooLights information page.
