We experimented with a new Christmas venue this year, and I think it may just become tradition.
You may remember last year, when we attempted Zoo Lights, which is a stunning display, but freezing cold. Our kids couldn't handle being up on the windy hill where the Zoo is located that late into winter, and spent the majority of the evening crying. We went back and forth on whether or not to try it again this year, but ultimately decided on going to Portland International Raceway instead.
The big selling point was that you get to stay cozy in your car and drive around looking at beautiful light displays. Yes please.
So we bundled up in our jammies with blankets and lovies, and Daddy even made us hot cocoa!
All ready to go!!
We drove slowly around the winding raceway and took in all the displays, which were pretty impressive!
The kids loved the lights, and Dave and I loved that even though it was drizzling outside, we stayed dry and warm inside the car =).
