I know it isn’t very seasonal to have 66 degree weather the night of winter solstice. But I gotta confess I didn’t mind it one bit as that was the evening I’d been planning to take the kids to see the lights at Brookside Gardens. I had never been but heard someone talking about them once. Unlike other light displays, this one you park and get out and walk. Which could be a hard sell for 4 kids on a cold winter night. But, this Saturday the weather was perfect. (and clearly we weren’t the only ones who thought so as we had to sit an hour in line at the parking lot before we could get in).
Seriously, my three year old walked around all night in short sleeves with NO JACKET… In DECEMBER.
The bull frog which actually croaked was amongst our favorites.
The lightning storm and rainbow were pretty cool too.
In the end I found it worth the drive and wait to spend a relaxing evening with the family walking around a garden of lights.
But, now I say, bring on some snow!
