Moody Gardens Christmas Lights

My Dad got us tickets to the Moody Garden Festival of Lights this year. We knew it was going to be cold, so we bundled up the boys, and headed down for dinner and lights! Dad treated us to a GREAT dinner at Salsa's on the seawall (we love that place!) After dinner, we grabbed the double sit and stand stroller (we hadn't used it yet, and it was GREAT!) and headed in to see the lights!

It's a pretty long trail of lights. Jackson enjoyed most of it, but I had told him before we left the house that they might have ice skating. Well, that's all he talked about the ENTIRE time we were heading down there, and once we got there, that's all he wanted to find! We found it, but it was PACKED. So we finished the light tour, and then headed back to the tent to find out how much our skates were ($5.00/person) and then see if they had them small enough for him.

Luckily for him, they did! Mommy, Daddy-O, and Jackson got to have a BLAST on the ice! Jackson did SOOO good! He was actually able to stay up on the skates, but didn't want us to let go of him. He could balance on his own, just couldn't "go" on his own. After about 20 minutes, Mommy's back was hurting from bending over to hold him AND try and skate. So we called it a night!

Thanks PaPaw for a great "Christmas-y" adventure!
