So here in Bakersfield they have a zoo equivalent called the CALM. It pretty much just has some birds, and a few other wildlife like bears, bobcats, snakes, deer, and now a mountain lion. After living so close to the Columbus Zoo it really isn't too much to shout about, but we REALLY enjoyed the Christmas light show that put on each year. We weren't expecting too much, and were pleasantly surprised. Emma LOVES the lights. She says "WOW" every time we see some as we are driving. It was so nice having a night out as a family. Emma was able to ride her first train, as well as a carousel. I don't know how much she liked it while riding the carousel, but she sure didn't want to leave it either. The funniest moment of the night was when we "tried" to get her to take a picture with Santa. Last year she didn't quite know what was going on, but this year she was terrified of Mr. Claus. She was just clinging to me with all her might. Ever since then, every time we even see a toy Santa clause she starts to get nervous. Pretty funny for the girl who used to not be afraid of anything. She is starting to get more nervous around people she doesn't know. Anyway, it was a fun night seeing the lights.
