Trail Of Lights

This year is the 50th Anniversary of the Trail of Lights. I remember going with my parents when I was growing up. It was so much fun spinning around under the lights of the tree. Last night, Boogs went for the first time. D and the J-boys went with us. The pictures are not great. We had a really good time.

 There was a giant ferris wheel in the field beside the tree of lights. It was $6 per rider, we skipped it.
D and I showed the boys how to grab hands, lean back, look up, and pull each other around in a circle under the tree of lights. It makes you dizzy in about three seconds.
Boogs and J3 got so dizzy they fell down. It took them a while to get back up.
 The lights were beautiful.
 There were three different tunnels of light. It was really neat walking underneath them.

  I could not decide if I liked the trees covered in all blue lights or
  the multi-colored lights the best.
There were different scenes spread throughout the trail. I liked Snoopy on his house.
Boogs liked the Jackalope.
The Where the Wild Things Are scene was pretty neat, too.
After we walked the trail, we had to go back to the tree and spin underneath it one more time. When we got home, Boogs said, "I liked seeing the lights and the tree but I wish we had gone on a Friday so I wouldn't have to wake up early for school."
