Festival of Lights

Usually the first few nights after Dave leaves for Texas are the hardest for all of us. In order to help with this, I decided to take the kids to the Holiday Festival of Lights for a fun time together.
We took Andrew's best friend, James with us and we all had a blast!
Every other year we have gone, we have gone during a day that was closer to Christmas. This year we went right after Thanksgiving and it was great. We also went early on in the night. We drove through with literally no traffic at all.
After driving and seeing the lights, I surprised the kids and took the train ride through the county park for a closer look at all the lights.

It was a ton of fun but I must say the most fun was stopping and roasting marshmallows and making smores.

Yum, Yum, Yummy!!
If you look real close, you can see the flame on Andrew's marshmallow ;)
