Part of the draw to Zoo Lights (in addition to the lights) is also the fact that there is snow. They use a snow machine to create it of course, but it is still snow, and still awesome none-the-less. Unfortunately for us, the snow exhibit cost $10 a person and was more than we brought. Dominik was SUPER upset about it, but still had an okay attitude considering. However, as luck and answered prayers would have it, just down the walk way from the main snow attraction was a much smaller...and FREE snow play area for the kids. Dominik was elated and was able to throw a few snowballs before he slipped and fell and then proceeded to hate the snow. Hahaha...such a funny kid!

At this point the sun had set and all the lights were turned on. The lower area that we were in didn't have too many lights so I was pretty disappointed. However, when we were walking up through the top area towards our car there were so many lights, making the whole trip totally worth it! There was a laser light show that left something to be desired, but the light displays were spectacular. My camera and shaky hands didn't do the lights justice...the whole things was very classy (sometimes hard to come by when it comes to the Japanese trying to recreate American traditions) and well done. The boys did great and we all had a blast! If we were here next year we would definitely be coming here again!!
