Zoolights is Christmas Lights at the Zoo

We don't want to leave Christmas behind, I know it's hard to :). I am still working on sorting the pictures from Christmas day but I figured I would post about our Zoolight outing. The local Zoo is decorated with Christmas lights this time of year. We had been meaning to take the boys but frankly it's always so cold that I kept getting discouraged. Well, the weather changed on us and we got this Spring type weather in the Winter and I just knew we had to go.

We packed our crew and to the zoo we went. My brother, his wife and my niece joined in on the fun. I bundled the kids up but it was so unseasonably warm that we were all sweating bullets under our jackets and hats. I brought the good camera for this outing because I know the camera phones suck for night pictures and I am so glad I did. We got so many great shots of the kids

Our crew minus my brother who was taking the picture :).
The kids kept pointing out the lights in the shape of the various animals. They were getting up close and personal and loving it.

Tman and Jbird excited about the blue horses
Like father like son, my first baby looks so grown here. Did you notice the matching hats too :). I know, I am insane
The other boys were chilling in the stroller
My mom carried the baby who was chilling the whole time. Hubby was manning the stroller and I was chasing the boys around. I love this picture of Jbird wanting to give the baby a big kiss before he started running around. Are you loving that hubby and the boys were wearing matching hats :)
It was a busy night but the boys just loved roaming around the place
My favorite crew
Chilling with my Jbird
My mom and baby girl
My brother and his growing family with my mom and baby girl
Did you notice that my scarf was coordinated with the boys' hat, sorry not sorry ;)
Bean just wanted to run
So we set them free
I love this picture with my 2nd and 3rd so much
Walking with my babies
Photo op what up

The big kids were mesmerized by all the lights and all the animals they saw
This picture is hilarious because I was running ahead of hubby to get a paparazzi like picture of them walking around and this fool was chasing me so when I turned around they were right behind me. I did this at least 3 times before realizing what they were doing. Hubby and Tman were cracking up every time and I didn't know what was happening
I did figure it out in the end

Love this picture of hubby and my brother handling the strollers. They were not impressed by the display of lights but they sure loved that the kids were having a great time. How cute is this picture of them pushing the strollers around with the kids in tow
Before we left, we let the kids get some treat. I love this picture with everyone (except me)
The zoo was crowded, the lights weren't all that impressive and we couldn't really see the animals but the kids really loved this outing because they got to run around like free range chickens on a farm :). Our outing to check out Christmas lights at the zoo was such a great success. The weather was excellent for an outing in the Winter and though it was crowded, the kids were still able to roam free and enjoy the lights. We might have to add this to our list of things we do during the Holidays. Have you checked out Christmas lights at your local Zoo?


  1. You got some really good shots. We went but ours was not exciting. Happy 2017

  2. Such a fun time! You guys are just too cute! We will definitely try to make this later on this year.
    Happy New Year!
