Zoo Lights & Rootbeer Floats

We were able to enjoy part of this past weekend with my sister Corrie!
She finished another semester up at BYU-Idaho (wahoo!) and was able to spend a day with us before driving back to Washington with one of her best friends :)

Saturday night I wanted to do something fun and festive with her so we went to see the Hogle Zoo Lights. The lights displays were neat, but sadly we saw more lights than animals (some cute monkeys and two parrots that Brooks loved). I guess I can't expect much more when there's snow on the ground and the temperature is below freezing... But being together made it a good night :)

Then we headed to Hires Big H to catch a late dinner...oh their homemade-rootbeer floats are GOOD. And yes, we did enjoy our float before our burgers ;) I think starting and ending a meal with something sweet is the way to go.
Our day with Corrie went by much too fast...but it was nice that we could say, "See you in a couple weeks!"

"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness, I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." -- Ether 12:27

Physical Health:
Does running around shopping, wrapping, and mailing presents count?? ;)

You and Corrie are the two prettiest sisters I've ever seen!!! What a fun night for everyone....love all those pretty lights, and how neat that they were at the zoo! Glad you got to see some monkeys (they are always my favorite). Little Brooks looks like a snuggly little burrito all tucked in for a stroll....little sweetie. :)

I don't really like root beer (Will thinks that is the craziest thing), but I do agree with starting and ending with a sweet treat. Yes Yes.

p.s. shopping, wrapping and mailing? Definitely a thorough workout. ;)

Look at you in your red lipstick! Love it! You look gorgeous.
I'm glad to know that about not seeing many animals at the zoo lights, I think that this year we will pass, but maybe try next year and hopefully see some animals.
How fun to spend time with your sister. You guys look so much alike!
That is Mike's favorite scripture by the way :-) And yes, shopping for sure counts as a work out!!!
