Zoo Lights...Oohh, Aahh!!

On Tuesday night, we jumped into the NEW car and headed to dinner and the Phx Zoo Lights with family friends! We had lots of fun! First we started out at our friend's house just hanging out while the kids played and then we jumped into the car and headed for this place...
Can you say YUMMY! Loving me some Johnny Rockets! They have the best burgers and shakes in a 50s style diner! The kids had so much fun wearing their silly hats and listening to the music from the jukebox.

After everyone was full burgers, fries, & shakes, we jumped back into the cars and headed here...


So pretty and so much fun (for the moms anyways!)!

The was a musical light show to Christmas music! It was way cool the way the trees were lighting up in different colors to the music.

While we were walking around, we came upon a climbing adventure! And of course the boys begged to be the 'climbing monkeys' and because the moms were the only ones seeming to enjoy this family & light filled night, we gave in! And for only $4 per kid, they got to climb the rock wall and the coconut tree!

The kids after the climb...Emma was crying cuz when they were done she wanted to try, but it was time to go! Maybe next time!

The 3 boys being monkeys and climbing the coconut tree. It must be harder than it looks, cuz not one of'em could climb to the top!

Brendan climbing ALL the way to the top. He was the only one of the 3 boys to hit the buzzer at the top! Way to go Bren!
