Grand Prairie Lights!

 During Christmas time a park in Grand Prairie, by Joe Pool lake, put up tons and tons of Christmas lights for a neat drive through experience!  We heard about it this year so we went.  Here are just a sampling of the photos we took...

There were some great drive through tunnels 

 I love the poinsettias!


They had lots of different themes as we drove through.  This is a sample of the 12 days of Christmas section

3 hens a laying

7 swans a swimming

8 maids a milking

11 pipers piping

12 drummers drumming

There is a Santa's village to stop at and has free rides for the kids.  There are also treats to buy and lots of people wanting to sell things.

One of the rides was this turning dragon thing.  The kids really liked it.  The first time they went the line was short, but by the time we went back to do it again the line was really long.  It doubled by the time we got to the front too.  The whole place was getting so packed.  I'm glad we got there early and missed the crowds!

The end the drive with a tunnel of lights.  It was super cool!
 I like the motion shot ;)

The end of the tunnel

It was really fun and pretty cheap too.  It will probably be something that we do every year since we will live really close to it ;)
