Prairie Lights 2012 {Part 1}

This year, we decided the kids were old enough to make the hour long drive to Grand Prairie and enjoy the drive through lights scene. Little did we know that when we got there, the line was MILES outside of the park. It went pretty fast though. We laid the seats down in the back of my SUV and loaded it up with snacks, colors, blankets and pillows. My mom, her boyfriend, and daughter went with us. We all loaded into one car when we got closer because it was $30 per car load! {We were safe inside the park when the kids got out of their seats}… The kids were so excited, they didn’t mind waiting in line at all.

Of course as soon as the line split into two lanes, my very sociable son immediately made new friends with the kids in the surrounding cars. He was cracking us up!Prairie Lights 050Prairie Lights 053

Noah was so excited because first up was a real fire station with a light up fire truck and police car out front- his favorite!

The “Twelve Days of Christmas” were up next. We sang the song to the kids the whole way through. Thankfully Memaw knew the whole song!
