@TurtleBackZoo: Fun #HolidayLights With Kids

We visited the Turtle Back Zoo tonight with a bit of drizzly rain. It was actually a beautiful night, even with a few rain drops. Every year this zoo has a night time holiday lights display for free admission during the Christmas season.

At the entrance, we saw the zoo’s mascot – a green turtle. Immediately, M ran to give hugs. She loves the color green and turtles. I was certain that we made her night.


And then we saw Rudolph the Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. I managed to get a quick photo with Rudolph. M kept running back and forth with excitement.


There were holiday lights throughout the whole zoo. The carousel was open for $2.00 rides. The indoor touch tank exhibit was also open to view the stingrays. The farm animals were in the warm barn for our viewing. I was very surprised to see that most exhibits were open to the public with a free admission. Majority of the animals were sleeping in the dark so I did not take too many photos but I took a few awesome photos of sea horses in their pretty aquarium.

Sea horses, believe it or not, are very fast swimmers. They rest while tails are curled around coral for a few minutes and then off to swimming they go. Truly remarkable. I can probably watch them for hours.

The girls were feeling better today so it was a nice outing for all of us. We also enjoyed some fresh air after being home for a few days.

And we had our friend snap a family photo for us with snowmen. We rarely have family photos where all of us are smiling and looking at the camera. I was so delighted! I could have used it for our Christmas card. 😉
