So we headed out, stopped at McDonald's for dinner on the way, rocked out to some Jonas Brothers during the ride, and before we knew it we were there. This year we took the shuttle from the parking lot near the marina at Point Defiance Park. Usually we drive around forever trying to find parking around the front gate, but due to some not so exact navigating, and some miscomprehending on direction taking, we ended up at the shuttle area. It kind of worked out perfect.
Once we got into the zoo and started walking around, we remembered why we wanted to voluntarily wander around in the thirty degree weather. If you've never been to Zoolights, you're missing out. It is such a gorgeous place to spend an evening. Pretty much the only animals you get to see are the fish and stuff in the aquarium, but the light displays are what you're really there to see anyway. This year they had camel rides, and the boys really wanted to do it. But due to a lack of funds, and a line that I didn't feel like spending the majority of the evening in, we decided against it. They weren't very happy with us. Maybe next year.
