Zoolight Hell!

Now that we have Munchkin, we find ourselves participating in things that never sparked an interest in us before. Some things are obvious, storytime at the local library, playdates, inflatable jumping places, but we are now Members of our local Zoo. With this membership, we are able to visit the Christmas light extravaganza at no additional charge..... and it's a good thing. We really weren't impressed. At all!

Maybe as Munchkin gets a little older things will change, but this year it was much ado about nothing, in my opinion. We chose Saturday because the weather has been warmer, and coming off of our croup seclusion we thought it would be better than going when the weather changes, and it's 20 degrees outside. We pull in, and the place is packed!!!! I've never been so surprised to see so many locals supporting an event like this, it's not typically in our nature. After searching for what seemed like forever for a parking place, we were able to walk right up to the member window and get our tickets, talk about a perk. The lines for tickets were easily taking another 30-45 minutes. Once inside we realize that it's nothing more than when our parents took us driving through neighborhoods, looking at Christmas lights when we were little. Only this time, we had to walk and it smelled like a zoo!
