Callaway Gardens Light Show

Notice Claire's new cowboy boots. We stopped on the way and got her a pair of Justin boots.
All bundled up to see the lights.

Watching the train

Claire really like Rudolph

Tinkerbell was probably Claire's favorite.

Visiting the butterfly exhibit.

Bucky planned a fun weekend for Claire and I. We debated over what to do for our 6th anniversary. We decided to take a family trip to Callaway Gardens to see the light show. Sweet Bucky planned everything and we had a ball. We went over Saturday after lunch. We checked in and got settled. We rested in the room for a little while. We tried to go eat dinner at the Country Store but the wait was an hour and a half. So we came back to our hotel and ate at the restaurant there. Claire insisted on sitting in a big chair. She ate all of nothing until I came back the some fettucini alfredo. Then she ate more than I have ever seen her eat. Thank goodness!
We went back to room and got bundled up. It was probably between 35-40 but the wind didn't help. We rode a bus from our hotel to the gardens. They had a huge set up with crafts and food. We looked around for a while. Then we rode the trolley through the lights at 9:00pm (8:00pm our time). I was worried because that is Claire's bedtime. But, she did great! She sat on the end seat so she could see everything. She was so still probably because she was tired and cold. But, she did wonderfully! She talked about every light. It was really great to see everything through her eyes.
We got up this morning and ate breakfast. We attempted to see a Birds of Prey show but it was cold and Claire wouldn't sit still. So, we went over to the butterfly exhibit. There weren't many butterflies compared to the last time we went. Claire liked it anyways.
Overall, it was a great trip. Thank you Bucky for planning it. We had no idea what a fun time we would have! Happy 6th Anniversary to my very sweet husband.
