We went up to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium the other night and had a great time seeing some of the animals, but mainly all of the amazing Christmas Lights. They have an amazing set up and we were not disappointed. To top it all off we rode the carousel at the end of the night and toddler D was in heaven. She loves carousels! What a great way to get even more into the Christmas spirit. Our favorite displays were the Sea hawks Tree, Mt. Rainier and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge.
Less that a week until Christmas.

While Stacy was here we headed up to Seattle to explore a little more. We spent some time at The Seattle Center, exploring Winterfest at the Armory and then riding the Monorail down to the Westlake area to ride the holiday carousel, shop and see all of the festive holidays decorations. I love the feeling of being in the city and being a part of the chaos, plus all of the holiday decor makes it even better.

We did a little more exploring along 6th Ave in Tacoma last week. We picked up our favorite donuts, strolled through some shops and then ran into Santa and his elves and a 'creepy' Frosty the Snowman, ha. It was great. T was surprised to see Santa, D was freaked out and R was just sleeping like a newborn does. Either way, it saved up a trip to the mall to wait in line to see Santa.
