We have seen the "zoo lights" unlit during the day and Brayden loved looking at all of them. He couldn't wait to see the next one and dragged us all over the zoo. We were really excited to take him at night. We waited until after Christmas so the crowds wouldn't be insane. The Friday after Christmas we went. It was SO MUCH fun. Amazing lights, hot chocolate, a model train area, and more. Neither one of them want anything to do with talking to or sitting on Santa's lap. Haha. It was a great night and we are definitely going next year.
