December 22: Visit the Botanical Gardens

Today's Christmas advent activity was a visit the the Botanical Gardens with two of my sisters and their families.  Every year the Idaho Botanical Gardens puts on their "Winter Garden Aglow" and this is our 3rd year going.  There are just so many beautiful lights in an interesting setting and the girls really enjoy it.
It was sure cold, but we bundled up and survived.  Charlotte only managed to stay awake for the first half hour or so, but during that time she was cheerful and enjoyed the lights and the fires.
I tried to take a few picture, but they don't even come close to doing it justice, it is such a pretty setting.
I love Christmas lights, they just make my heart happy.
Lily loved the little trees with the flower lights on them.  She kept going up to them, touching the lights and telling us what color it was.

This was also the first year that Tyson was able to come with us, poor guy always has to work, so it was fun to have him come along.
