We've been meaning to take Riley there to walk around the trails, but it was either too cold or we simply forgot. Knowing that the lights wouldn't be on much longer we bundled up and headed out this weekend. At first she was pretty stressed out that we were in the car and kept asking to get out. Once she understood that we would get out of the car once at the park she calmed down... and once we got to the park she pretty much freaked out with excitement. "Lookatthoselights!Andthoselights!They'resopretty.Greenlights!Lookatthoselightsoverthere!"
And so on... It was so worth it to see the excitement in my kids eyes that we plan to check them out again next week. I just wish we went earlier.
Oh, to see life through the eyes of a child.
