Nights of Lights

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is going to Lake Lanier to see “The Magical Nights of Lights” Christmas light display.  It is something that we all look forward to.

After we get through the gate, we let the kids sit in our laps while we drive through the park.  They love getting to do that!


We were able to get some pictures with the Coca-Cola bear – a true Atlanta Christmas icon!


After we picked out our family ornament (which I never took a picture of…grrr!), we went outside to the firepit to roast some marshmallows. 

Mikayla had a lot of fun stuffing her face full of “roasted” marshmallows.   Mikayla is not much of a true (in my eyes, at least) roaster.  She likes to stick it in the fire for about two seconds – I’m not sure it even warms it!  She likes there to be NO black on there ( in my opinion, the more charred the better!).  Oh well, she has fun and that is all that matters.IMG_0976

Now, Gavin LOVES to roast the marshmallows, but he will not eat them ( or much of anything else, for that matter! ).  Again, as long as he is having fun!


I love creating these kind of memories with our growing family – I hope this tradition is one that carries on for a long time.
