Meadowlark Gardens Winter Walk of Lights

The night before we officially started potty training Valentino, we thought we should celebrate the last night of being able to go anywhere for a very long time, and so we went to see Meadowlark Botanical Garden’s Winter Walk of Lights!

We bundled up the kids with multiple layers, hat, mittens and the works, and went off to see the lights.


We met up with Valentino and Caspian’s school friends, and enjoyed a nice walk in what seemed like subfreezing temperatures. It was SO cold! We had bundled up Caspian so much that he could hardly move! It was cute. It was bitter cold at first, but once we started walking it helped to warm up.


The kids loved the lights! I don’t think they minded the cold either. Valentino would point to everything and name the colors of the lights. He got probably 4 out of 5 correct. Yay for progress!
