This year, the Zoo Lights exhibition at The National Zoo was free. Seeing as how we were already going to go, it was just the icing on an already delicious cake!
Fans of the blog will remember that we did this last year (Click HERE to refresh your memory) and had a really good time.
It was a cold night, but shockingly it was also the warmest night in recent memory, which is why we ended up going on that night...it also was a bit misty out, so that added to the chilliness.
It didn't stop us from getting all bundled up and having fun, though! As always, there were lots of pretty lights to see, and Mom and Dad were nice enough to let me see whichever ones I wanted! They were in animal shapes, and some of them were even animated!
We followed some carolers around so that I could listen to them singing and playing a drum, which I LOVED.
They also had the trees that lit up and blinked in time to Christmas songs, which was a lot of fun to see...
In addition to the various animal shapes, there were also traditional lights set up that I really enjoyed. They were really pretty.
Towards the end of the night, we grabbed some fries for dinner, and even though they were a bit hot (Both temperature hot, and spicy hot) they were pretty yummy.
Because it was getting late, and the weather was a little iffy still, we packed up before we had seen the lower level of the zoo, but really, we had all gotten to see a lot of the light displays, and were feeling pretty good about the trip...it was definitely a fun way to spend part of the Christmas season!
