Two of my favorite things on Earth are animals and Christmas lights. We got to see both of those things combined for one magical evening at Christmas at the Indianapolis Zoo. I slightly remember riding the train around to zoo to see the lights when I was little but most of my memories have faded. I am so happy to be back in Indianapolis enjoying attractions like this with Sophie.
Today I’m talking about our family night out at the Indianapolis Zoo and why you must make time for it this (and every) holiday season. It’s the perfect attraction for people of all ages. Sophie is at the perfect age for outdoor activities, especially when they include decorating cookies, seeing animals, riding the carousel and taking a train to gaze at all the beautiful Christmas lights. Being the music lover she is, she thoroughly enjoyed the light displays set to music and the carolers around the bon-fire. I loved the sense of slowing down and singing songs around a fire in the middle of such a bustling place. We are definitely putting this on the list of Christmas Traditions to do each year. To be honest, we may go again this year because we all loved it so much!
Head over to Indy’s Child to check out my suggestions and let me know if you have every been to a Christmas at the Zoo in your town. PS. Those sugar cookies are worth going alone. They’re amazing.
