Trail of Lights * ^ * ^ *

This weekend I had the chance to head downtown with some friends to take a walk on the newly re-instated Trail of Lights!

It’s been 2 years, I believe, since Austin reveled in the famed light display. However, it seems the city hasn’t missed a beat!

Now, my friends and I can attest that coming the initial weekend may not have been the best idea (since it was BEYOND PACKED)! Nevertheless, I’m glad I went. Despite the cold… Despite parking in the boonies and taking a 5 mile hike… despite waiting in a very long line to simply ENTER the trail… despite the the mass hysteria of uncontrolled strollers, run-away children and turned-around parents… despite the disappointment of discovering there was an insufficiency of turkey legs (yet, plenty of funnel cake)! Through it all, I still found myself caught up in awe.

Why, you ask?!

Well, as a kid one of my FAVORITE Christmas traditions was to have the whole family pile in a car, drive around to various neighborhoods, and look at the lights. So I guess you could say my trail time took me back in time… even if just for a moment.

My advice: Take your kids… take yourselves! Be ready for a little crazy in getting there, but once you arrive, get caught up in the moment… and enjoy creating memories for the years to come!

    Your pictures make it look magical! Seriously. This makes me want to go … I was kind of on the fence, but now I’m in.
