We love going to the zoo for Zoolight Safari. It’s usually pretty cold, but we bundle up and tough it out. New this year, they brought in a large Christmas tree and have a nightly tree lighting.
The girls love visiting Santa here. I thought Samantha might be over her fear of Santa, but no. She likes Santa at the zoo, but when Santa came to school for breakfast a few days earlier, she wanted nothing to do with him. Ellie was thrilled to be able to share her wish. The girls each told Santa one thing. I was impressed that it was only one each. Samantha asked for a Rainbow Loom, and Ellie asked for a trunk full of princess dresses. We’ll see if they’ve been good.
And of course, we had to take a ride on the Candy Cane Express. A trip to Zoolight Safari would not be complete without it.
I have fond memories of Samantha in this pink coat. In fact, here is one of my favorite pictures from Zoolight Safari 2010. Brown Baby is posing as an elf.
