Last week we were given the awesome opportunity to check out the ZooLights at the Oregon Zoo. I've wanted to go every year, but this was my first chance actually going. It was amazing. Despite the sub-freezing temperatures, we still managed to have a lot of fun. I am adding one solid thing to my Christmas list, however - a nice quality pair of gloves!
last few trips to the zoo and brought the wagon this time - such a good choice! Well... at times. We were able to fit both kids, snuggled up with blankets in the wagon for the most part. G loved running ahead and check things out, and by the end, all N wanted was for me to hold her.
My husband was stuck working out of town for the week, so the kids and I brought my parents along. They were cold, but enjoyed the trip every bit as much as we did. Plus, it gave G and I the chance to check out the virtual ride! We chose the snow ride, and G loved it so much, we went for a second ride before leaving! It's a 3D simulator ride with a bunch of different options - a tropical ride, a futuristic glacier run.
