New Year’s Eve in Lights

Last year we took little Cupcake Girl to Rock City’s Enchanted Garden of Lights on New Year’s Eve. I looked back through my blog and realized I didn’t blog about it. Hmmm…..oh well. We decided to make our second visit this year since she would be sleeping over. Kind of a nice little tradition that we can keep going. The folks at Rock City really try to make a spectacular event of their garden and they don’t disappoint. We arrived a little too early, so we browsed the gift shop and had a little snack. Cupcake Girl was pretty patient waiting for 6 o’clock to arrive. She is also loving her new “pouty” face lately.




It was a beautiful night. Not too cold and not a cloud in the sky.




Cupcake Girl received a little point & shoot camera for Christmas and she took some great pictures at Rock City. I really enjoy capturing her taking pictures as well as seeing what she has taken. Her sweet Mama has created a little blog just for her photography, so take a peek sometime!


Earlier, while waiting for Rock City to open, she fell in love with a little stuffed polar bear. She tucked the bear in her coat so her hands would be free to take pictures or put in her pockets to keep warm. You will notice the bear in some of the next few pictures.


The closer we got to the Fairyland, the faster she ran!


After several zigs and zags, we arrived to the entrance, which was heavily guarded!



And finally, here is my first picture for 2012. It was taken at 12:11 a.m. on 01.01.12 (notice all the 1’s and 2’s?). I think Rock City wore her out! Happy New Year everyone!
