i have lived in arizona for 5 winters now and have said i will go to zoolights every year, and it just never happened. zoolights is over on the 10th (this sunday), so we figured yesterday was as good a time as any! the weather was perfect, as was the company. we had dinner at robert and lindsay’s first, where we had a traditional ‘vig’ (lindsay’s maiden name) meal of swedish meatballs and potatoes. superyummy! thanks lindsay.
we loaded up the four kids (in two seperate vehicles. cause even though i have a mini van, we cannot fit 4 car seats and 4 adults in it.) and were on our way. we stopped at starbucks on the way which was a particularly wonderful treat for me. i don’t actually remember the last time i had a latte (maybe a month ago), so i seriously savoured it.
it was $7 for us to each get in (not the kids. they’re free) cause i have a zoo pass. there were tons and tons and tons of lights. it was very fun to look at it all. the kids weren’t really able to appreciate everything, but i think in a few short years, they will come to love zoolights. only a section of the zoo is open for zoolights, and i was surprised at how short the walk seemed. but chris told me we had already been there for an hour and i was shocked. time flies when you’re having fun!
