ZooLights

The Friday before Christmas we found ourselves with a free evening and the temperatures were nice outside, so we impulsively decided to go take in the ZooLights at the Baton Rouge Zoo.  Last year when we attended this event it was FREEZING, so it was nice to be able to go out in shorts and a t-shirt this year...
Stella fell asleep on the way to the zoo and it took her a few minutes to perk up once we arrived...
 On the way to the zoo we were lamenting the fact that we hadn't invited any friends to come with us, but that problem solved itself when we met a family from our neighborhood at the entrance.  They had apparently had the same great idea as us for Friday night entertainment...
 The globe behind Cille is held up with water pressure and the kids can push it and make it change directions.  It reminds me a little bit of Atlas, but Cille just likes it because it gets her hands wet and then she can chase people and try to get them wet also...


 Stella has that strange look on her face because the younger girls were not taking kindly to her bossing and chose to pose themselves...
When they followed her directions her smile came back...
 Even Watts had a friend, although he found the zoo absolutely exhausting...I'm sure the boys will have more fun together next year...

 Pretty as peacocks...
 How sweet are these friends?
 I think Stella was pretending to be afraid of the bear?

 Cille was pretending to be afraid of the wolf.  Pretending to be afraid is all the rage these days...
 This one is blurry but I still like it...
 I believe there were multiple signs asking people to stay on the sidewalks, but we are apparently THOSE parents who are having such a great time visiting with other adults that they let their kids run wild...
 And sometimes they get away from ya...
 This is one of my favorites...
 He might not be big enough, but don't tell him that...
 Watts is talking in this picture.  These days, Watts is always talking.  The only problem is that no one understands anything that Watts is saying...
 My little monkey...





 Almost there...


 We all had a great night at the zoo and it was such a special treat to spend time with neighborhood friends!
