Zoo Lights and Dressing Up

I dragged that family out on Saturday night, after an early dinner, to go see the Zoo Lights that everyone is raving about. Since we got an annual membership to the zoo, we got 2 free tickets to go. And the boys were free, which means it was all free! Jack LOVED all the lights to see. Lincoln thought they were okay, too, but wasn't as vocal about it.

Here was a pretty awesome spider! Notice the peacock sitting in the tree, too?

For some reason, all these spots were showing up in the air! Doug wanted to spoil Jack and let him ride a camel... just like in the Lego Indiana Jones game on Xbox! Jack kept saying, "I'm so excited!"

If you open your mouth in front of Lincoln and say, "Aahhhh!" and there is food in front of him, he's more than willing to share!

Here's more of that horrible condensation I was talking about. If you look closely, you can see the palm trees covered in Christmas lights. I thought this was somewhat amusing, since I've never seen this before. You can also sort of make out the Stay-Puff marshmallow man... which always reminds me of Ghostbusters.

Lincoln was totally getting down to that Trans-Siberian Orchestra song with "Carol of the Bells" in it! I have a video of it at the bottom.

Jack thought it was pretty funny. He also enjoyed the kettle corn.

Here are the boys, all dressed up for church on Sunday.

Jack wanted to try on his winter coat and snow pants that we got for him recently. He's excited to use these when we go to grandma's!

Lincoln wanted to pose for the camera.

Then we tried Lincoln's winter clothes on him. He wasn't as excited.

Here's the video of Lincoln dancing in the car. He's a little camera shy!

Utah, we're excited to see you in a couple weeks! We're counting down the days.

Karel hasn't asked us to do anything for the program yet.... Deacon can't even talk so pretty sure he won't be doing anything!!

I've kind of wanted to go to see the lights at the zoo here in utah, but never wanted to brave the cold for that long. I guess the warm arizona winters make that so much easier than here.

Your coming to utah?! Fun!
