Day 2 of 25 Days of Christmas

Tonight we went to Christmas Town and Busch Gardens.  I've enjoyed going for the last 2 years, but this year I LOVED it!  The first year I was pregnant with Scoot and then last year she was just 6 months old (and it was FREEZING!) so while it was fun and beautiful, this year was so much more special because she is really starting to enjoy stuff like this! 

We got super lucky and got discount tickets for only $5 (normally $24) so we plan on going one more time before they close up over New Years.  It was nice to be able to take our time and only do half of the park since we know we'll be going back.  That made it so much easier on Scoot too. 

The Clydesdale horses are my favorite!  As soon as Scoot saw them we knew they were her favorite too!  She was pointing and squealing "HOSS" and "NEIGH" - it was ADORABLE!

One of the shows is "A Sesame Street Christmas" and once again we had a squealer!  ELMO! ELMO! ELMO!  This kid almost came right out of her seat and over the rail in front of us trying to get closer to Elmo.  The show was a perfectly timed 20 minutes. 

I wore my Ergo baby carrier and Scoot did enjoy riding in that on the longer walks (to & from the car, on the way to dinner) but for the most part she much preferred walking.  Especially because while she was walking she could reach out and touch the millions of lights on the hundreds of trees lining the walk ways.  It was so pretty!  And she just wanted to express her appreciation by touching as many as possible!  Whenever she was in the Ergo, she would call "Dada" about every 3 steps to make sure he was still there.  SOOOO cute!

We took a little time to admire baby Jesus.  A beautiful Nativity display!

Scoot was ready to walk and touch and did not appreciate me stopping for a photo op or trying to hold her!  

She was starting to fall into the zone (it was WAY past her bed time) and sitting on the polar bear meant that she could reach the tree above her head so she didn't mind when I picked her up this time.  Even without a smile, I love this picture!!
