Light up Charlestown

We started a new tradition by going to Light up Charlestown this year. We have went to see the lights several times the past couple of years but this was the first time we went to see them light up the night after Thanksgiving. The cutest thing happened when we drove past Cooper's school. He said "Look daddy, there's my school. One day I want you to go to school with me and I can introduce you to all my friends".

We had about 40 minutes to spare once we got to the park, luckily we were able to find some swings. Both boys were swinging and giggling and there was some Christmas music in the background. I think I had a moment. I felt so blessed. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Yes, we are the parents who don't take time to wipe off our children's mouth after dinner.

About five minutes before the lights came on we made our way back up the hill towards the highway so we could look down into the park. It was a great spot, we got a good view of the whole park and we were close to highway to make a quick exit across the street to see the square all lit up. This isn't the best picture and I didn't get any on the square but I am sure we will be back many times before Christmas.
