Trail of Lights

The town we live in has a small natural science center and wildlife sanctuary.  We became members there about a year ago, and have enjoyed trips to visit the exhibits and walk the trails.  This weekend is their annual trail of lights event, where they line the trail with red and white Christmas lights, as well as some trees and the animatronic dinosaurs that are currently on display.  We decided to check it out, working to make great holiday memories with our family.  We enjoyed the evening out, spending time among people who are in the Christmas spirit is always fun!  The weather was perfect, in the 50s so it was just cool enough to warrant a coat, but not so cold that we didn't enjoy being outside.  We walked the trail while snacking on popcorn, then stopped for a while to drink some hot cocoa and listen to the community band play Christmas carols.

After our stroll along the trail, we picked up a pizza and drove around to look at lights.  Eating pizza while light-seeing might be a new tradition!
