Zoo – The Last Gathering A to Z Challenge

A memorable time for me and three of my grandchildren before I moved to another state was going to the zoo’s light show.

Every year the Zoo is decorated with millions of beautiful lights and hosts various festivities to celebrate the holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I decided to take my grandchildren for an enjoyable time. It was our first time at this event. In spite of the cold we had a wonderful time. No one complained. It was a surreal time. When I think about that day I can still feel the peace and calm that we experienced on our adventure.

We made our way through the zoo enjoying the light show and the animals. I also took pictures to remember the outing but they didn’t come out well because it was night. In spite of the pictures not turning out I have a picture in my heart that will last a lifetime.

Do you have any memorable times hidden in your heart?

  1. Great finale for the A-Z Contest.. you are right, it is the pictures that are in your heart that count. Good for you!

  2. You are so right – we carry our memories in our imagination wherever we are and whatever circumstances we find ourselves in.

    My kids may not have had all the latest gadgets or the fanciest clothes but I realised we must have done something right when my daughter (in her 20’s) commented that she remembered the happy holidays, outings and experiences she had growing up – and remarked that she was so lucky to have had parents who had time to spend with her! (heart glows with pride!)

    Just arrived here via the ‘surprise me’ button on the A-Z blog hop! 😉

    SueH I refuse to go quietly!

    • Thanks for the challenge. I did pretty good considering I’m new at blogging. People reading and commenting on my posts encouraged me to keep going until I got to Z. I still have a lot to learn about maneuvering through all the steps. I’m sure I missed a lot of them. I’ll be back next year.
