Today we're back with another holiday update, this time from the Zoo Lights at the Los Angeles Zoo.
In it's 4th year they've made a few changes to the event and the holiday cheer is evident all around.

Welcome to the Zoo Lights!!
Monkeys are awesome!!
Some of the new lights for 2017
Aww, they were tired. =)
More new lights
Two Swans a-sleeping ...
For some reason this looked like celery to us
The Tunnel of Lights!! Always a highlight
These are new, snowflakes with different animals
The Flaming-O Musical notes. Not new, but in a new location.
The water show was back, check out a video and slideshow of it below. It's a lot of fun
Overall it was another great year for the Zoo Lights. It's a great family evening in Griffith Park.
We will say though, it's probably time for them to change some things up next year. 4 years and most of the lights were the same as year 1. We'd love to see them expand this deeper into the zoo as well as it can get quite crowded. But overall a really fun family event that we look forward to every year.
Today we have an update for those of you with kids on the younger side as we had Adam, Shawnda and Lucia head out to check out the Reindeer Romp at the Los Angeles Zoo a couple of weeks ago.
See what it's like to experience this great holiday event with a 2 year old in tow. For more info on Reindeer Romp click here.

We had such a great time at the Reindeer Romp. There was so much to do along with the regular attractions, that we almost didn’t get to see everything!
Most parents know the value of a nice long walk at the zoo to tucker out your little one. That’s why the zoo is the perfect place to take your child to learn, observe and explore.
Our daughter Lucia is the perfect combination of curious, genius and insane? Well, she is two after all. The Reindeer Romp included a meet and greet with the lovable, fuzzy delivery guys themselves. That’s right. The reindeer made an appearance out of their busy schedules to say hello the kids!
There was a crafty make your own antlers station.... which I’m not sure who enjoyed more..... the kids or the adults. There were plenty of festive decorations celebrating Christmas, Quanza, Channukah as well as festive musical entertainment performed by the Andrew Sisters...ish Beverly Belles!
There was a puppet show, and other holiday activities as well. All of that along with the Zoo’s furry, featherly, scaly cast of characters we already know and love!
Last but, not least we got to see the big guy himself...Santa Claus! Luckily we were able to get a couple photos in before Lucia burst into tears! Good times folks and highly recommended!

This year the LA Zoo "Zoo Lights" is back for another year of holiday fun. If you've been to the event the last couple of years you know what this event is, just a great 90 minutes to 2 hours of Holiday Fun.
This year they've added some more live music and of course the amazing Reindeer.

The LightScapes Water Show is back this year and is a lot of fun
Overall Zoo Lights is another amazing event that keeps getting better each year. We would like to see more changed next year though as most of the props have been around for 3 years now. But overall just an incredibly fun night as always.
