Holiday Lights at Thanksgiving Point

For our first activity of the Christmas season we went to see the Holiday Lights at Thanksgiving Point. It's a drive-thru light display that normally costs $10/car, but was free for members on November 30th and December 1st.

We went Monday and the line was insane!! Probably a few miles long and barely moving. It took us all of one minute to come to the decision that it wasn't worth it. We told Sophie we would come back the next night, turned around, and got a hot fudge Sundae from McDonalds as a consolation prize.

On Tuesday things were complete different. Our wait was less than 10 minutes - so much better! The lights were fun, but nothing extraordinary. I'm glad it wasn't something we paid for. Sophie loved it though!! She gets excited over a single string of Christmas lights on a house, so this was very special and fun for her.

We received a coupon for a free hot chocolate so on our way out we stopped by the main pavilion for our treat and to see the reindeer. We were not dressed for the cold, since we thought we'd be in the car the whole time, and poor Sophie was freezing. I was a little cold myself, even though I had two jackets on. The fire and the hot chocolate helped warm us up a little, but once our fun was done we decided to call it a night.
