Our New Year's Eve

I think that I had the best possible New Year's Eve this year! I couldn't have asked for anything better than to spend the evening laughing and exploring the excitement of the night with the two men in my life. The evening was brisk so we bundled up to keep warm and headed out to the Zoo!

The animals were safely locked up inside but on the outside, the zoo was transformed into a magical wonderland of Christmas lights and displays. Along with these amazing displays of lights, there were plenty of activities for the little ones to keep entertained. Activities such as snowman bowling, igloo building (with styrofoam blocks), snowball alley and a large rubber slide; perfect for the little ones to have a wonderful evening. There were firepits with hot chocolate available for everyone to warm up which were serenaded by festive holiday music.

To end the night off (at 8:30 pm), the zoo put on a beautiful fireworks show. This fabulous display lasted for 15 minutes and was a perfect way to end the night.

What better way to celebrate the ending of a great year and the embarking on the adventures of a new one than with your family? I for one, can't think of anything better.

What great pics! That sounds like a really fun night! The great thing about having a small child is that they go to bed early and you can really ring in the new year alone with your hubby!
