Zoo Lights

Last night we made our annual trip to the Denver Zoo for the Zoo Lights. It is always a magical night as you walk through the zoo with hundreds of thousands of lights twinkling all around.
The favorite part of the zoo for the kids is the carousel. They giggled with delight as we went round and round. I have officially become one of those weird, old people that get sentimental around carousels. As I looked at their beaming faces with sounds of Christmas music in the background, I felt that familiar lump in my throat and my eyes begin to burn. It is truly a wonderful time in my life right now and watching the kids full of excitement and joy, well, it just puts me over the top.
Luckily, my emotional moment was abruptly ended as the carousel began to go round and another old person feeling kicked in, dizziness. As I kid I use to kart wheel from point A to point B, but now a little round and round on the merry go round and I just about fall down.
Karlie usually wants the elephant and Hailey always wants the zebra.
She rode "Jockey" position the whole ride. :)
The next big event was the train, which was Hank's favorite part.
Then it was time for the inevitable, I have to pee. Of course we were on the completely opposite side of the bathrooms and young kids wait until the very last minute to tell you. We raced as fast as we could to the giraffe house, where the bathrooms were.
The zoo currently has 3 baby giraffes. They are entirely too cute and were an unexpecteda perk to our urgent rush to the bathroom. After the pee break, it was time for the hot coco and cookies we brought. We had just got everyone all set on the bench with their burning hot coco when Kaitlin accidental dropped hers on Karlie's lap! Luckily she had a blanket and scarf that caught most of it. As I saw it fall on her, I considered ripping her pants off to prevent the boiling hot coco from burning her leg. I grabbed her pants and tired to pull them away from her as fast as I could. I could tell from her cry that it was not going to be a burn, just hot and upsetting. The hot coco moment was over as Karlie was now freezing in her wet pants. It was time to go home.

You can always count on a blip in the road with four kids. :) It is never going to be quite how you planned or imagined. Sometimes for worse, but most often for better. In 10 years, we wont remember the spill, just the charming night at the zoo.
