Winter Garden-a-Glow

Every year we make the trip to the Idaho Botanical Gardens. During December it becomes a winter wonderland of lights. Two years ago we made the trip while I was in early labor with T Rex.

I believe we picked the busiest night of the year to make our visit. We parked nearly a mile away and then had to wait in line for close to 30 minutes. However, we were not disappointed. And, T Rex got to meet Prancer - who, by the way, is a girl! I was surprised by how tiny she was. T Rex declined to see Santa again.

Here are some photos...

Bundled up and ready to go - it was a chilly 19 degrees outside.

Giving gentle "pats" to Prancer. One child in line asked where Rudolgh was. I guess we don't get big "headliner" reindeer here in our small city. But I have to admit, Prancer was pretty cool! Her antlers were in full velvet - gorgeous.

Merry Christmas 2009!!!

Those lights are beautiful. We have something similar here. Luke went two years ago with his dad but I didn't take the new born out then and we did not make it this year or last year. Maybe next year.
