Family life seems to have a specific cycle: These people I love fill me up. Drain me. Repeat.
On Monday night Bron and I were feeling particularly drained and defeated by two little boys, but we loaded up into the car to go see the lights as promised anyway. And I am so glad we did! We were immediately filled to the brim again.
The colorful lights at Rock Creek Station are always one of my favorite Christmas season activities. The trunks are wrapped from top to bottom. There are a myriad of characters all lit up that the boys enjoy pointing and gawking at. There are even bacon lights strung on a bush! Totally cool. We simply enjoyed the relatively warm uncrowded evening holding hands and wandering happily around together as a family of four. Thanks for filling my tank, boys!
^^The bacon branches. So random. I love it!^^
