We took the kids to Zoolights for the first time ever this year, mostly so James could ride the train since he loves them right now (I think the Polar Express movie is to blame). It was a cold, rainy, and windy night, but we are so rarely up in Portland that we decided to brave it. I'm so glad we did! James said "Wow!" when he saw the lights, over and over again. Every time he heard a train whistle, he said, "I sit on that!" meaning he wanted to take a ride. Eleanore slept peacefully in the Ergo as we rode the train and walked around seeing the lights and a couple animals. James liked the giraffe lights the best besides the train.
We were wet and tired when we trudged back to the car, but a good time was had by all and I'm so glad we did it. It's important for our family to get out together and for us to enjoy our children, especially in these long days when they don't seem to sleep and James is into EVERYTHING all the time. That boy never stops moving!
Here are some pics and video from our trip!
