Holiday Fun

When you think holidays do you think crowds? Last night crowds is what we thought and crowds is what saw. The Oregon Zoo opened their annual Zoolights display. The first night is free to all zoo members, so being a zoo member we decided to go and check out the displays and all the fun.

Our first adventure was getting the kids on the Max train and seated. The next adventure was trying to get the kids off the train at our stop. I was a little concerned that we wouldn't be able to get from our seats and out the doors before the train moved on to its next stop due to the amount of people crammed into our car. We were successful and everyone made it off the train in plenty of time. Thankfully we had a zoo membership and didn't have to stand in the very long lines to get tickets.

Once walking through the gates, we were greeted with the sounds of the season, Christmas music was in the air along with crying children and grumpy adults. Thankfully we had neither in our group. I enjoyed trying out my camera taking pictures of all the lights and displays. The kids loved looking at the lights. Jim was ready to go home about 10 minutes after walking through the gates, he was a real trooper and I think he even enjoyed himself.
