Festival of Lights

 Saturday night we hung out at my parents house for a little bit then headed to the county park at 5:30 (right when they opened) to go see the Festival of lights. I have been wanting to go all December but before Christmas the crowds are just ridiculous. The lights are great but for me it is not worth the traffic to get there. Luckily with us getting there right when it opened the lines were to a minimum but surprisingly it was still super busy considering Christmas had come and gone.

I know my Grammy sometimes gets to see my blog so thank you grammy for paying for us to go  it was a blast!!
She gave us some Christmas money for the kids so this is where we spent it!

 Logan and I were excited!

 The pirate ship was probably one of my favorites besides the tree at the very end!
(Logan is the one on the left)
 We decided to park the car and go see what fun we could get into. First up was the climbing wall which the kids did pretty good even Alayna. So this is funny at least to me but the rules say you have to be at least 40lbs which she is not BUT I just said I didn't know what she weighed and they let her do it based off looking at her and thinking she was big enough. She is such a peanut and I didn't want her to have to miss out on the fun. Like I said though they both did really good.
 Top pictures are Alayna, Far left! I zoomed the ones of Logan so you can obviously see it's him!

 We walked around a bit after the wall climbing.

 Dave ate dinner at the park which surprisingly didn't break the bank, you know how those places can be. The kids helped with the fries! We got to see an exhibit with the skull of a bottle nose dolphin which was quite cool, a sea turtle skull, a few other random items (fake snakes) and a stuffed bob cat. The kids were really interested in it and they got a hand stamp of an animal, semi educational too! 


 I swear he wanted to be in this picture with me although his face says otherwise haha

 Last thing before going back to the car, the carousel!


We were there about 2 hours then decided to head home as the crowds were getting even worse plus everyone needed baths before bed! The weather has been so warm which makes for some sweaty kids especially when they are outside the whole time at my parents house riding their scooters. I believe the weather is supposed to cool off this weekend which makes me super excited that I will get to wear the Uggs my parents got me for Christmas!!!

 ANNNNNNND my birthday is tomorrow, It will start my last year in my 20's which seems insane to me but it is true!! So much to look forward to!!


Somehow the placing of all my pictures is off but I can't figure out how to fix it so it is what it is! haha
