The Lights Before Christmas at the Toledo Zoo in Ohio. We haven't made it every year, but we were determined to make it this year. We got a later start than we wanted to and got about 20 minutes out when we realized Avery didn't have her coat. The evening is always F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G so there is no way we could go without her coat. We turned around, drove home for the coat, and then headed out again. By the time we got to the zoo, it was the same time we thought we would be home from the zoo when we had laid the original plans. Yikes. We had a good time, though. The lights were so beautiful. I could never take a picture that captures the feeling there. Avery was so sad that we didn't see the tigers, but they were cold, too! The ride home was a little long because it was late and girls were tired. We had to ask if it was worth it, and, yes, it was because this is part of our Christmas each year.
