Zoo Lights Trip

We ventured out, the first time as a family of 7, to our local zoo for their zoo lights display. It was awesome! They put up about 2.5 million lights this year. And some displays have a lot of lights on them, like the Big Blue Tree which has 500,000 lights on it. WOW!

We took Jared to the zoo's light display years ago. Here he is back in 2006, at 2.5 years old. What a little guy he was back then!!Now, here are pictures of our trip to the zoo lights in 2009.
