Advent Calendar - Outdoor Decorations

One of our family's favorite ways of enjoying outdoor holiday decorations over the years has been to visit the annual ZooLights display at the Phoenix Zoo. We have taken many out of town guests to ZooLights and have seen immense changes as it has grown. Visiting the zoo at night has also been a great way to see some of the nocturnal animals when they are more active.

The constantly changing colored ball over the lake is a new addition since our last visit to ZooLights.

Every few minutes a new piece of holiday music is played and the lights in this avenue of trees change in time to the music. It attracts quite a crowd.

This is the first year we went with no children (they had other plans). I have to say, it's just not the same without kids. However, I was able to be my geeky self by bringing my camera bag and tripod along without having to embarass any teens!

  1. Oh so beautiful Michelle! I love lights, I would be happy to go with you and pretend to be one of the kids!

  2. Well, Michelle I'm glad you had fun and your pictures are beautiful. Won't it be funny if the kids said they wished they had gone?

  3. Barbara, Youngest Child went last night with a friend. Said it just wasn't the same...

    Cheryl, I think it would be fun if we both went and pretended to be kids!

  4. I'm a big kid about lights and Christmas! Your pictures are just gorgeous, I wish I could see it.

  5. This is something I would definitely want to go see. I cannot resist a light display.

  6. Superb photos - I love the ball on the lake. Jo
