I originally wanted to go do Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo recently but with the very cold weather, the hour long drive each way, Ryan unavailable, and the crowds... I decided it wasn't going to happen. Instead I chose to go to Clifton Mill which was much closer, smaller, cheaper, and less people (especially on a weeknight).
It was very cold that night so we were all bundled up.
We started out by walking across the covered bridge, then looking at the Nativity. It was here that William's distractions began -- trying to climb over the wood fence to steal a lightbulb.
|Mary, baby Jesus, Joseph, and a Wiseman|
|The Mill Wheel|
|Our view of the light show -- the covered bridge|
I bought our hotdog, pretzel, and hot chocolate then found a place to sit that was warm.
So yeah, the night didn't go as magically as I planned. But for parts of it we did have a great time.
Maybe next time will be better.
