Moody Gardens Festival of Lights

So we had never been to see the Moody Gardens lights before!  I don't know why, but they just seemed kind of lame to me.  But I saw that they had buy 1 get 1 free tickets if you brought food to donate on Friday nights, so I figured for $12.00 we should give it a try.  We drove through HORRIBLE traffic to get down there, but it was worth it.  Although an hour into the drive and all the "are we almost there?"  we might have said differently!  :)

They also have half off tickets to the exhibits after 5:00, and since they are crazy expensive to get into normally we decided to go to the aquarium pyramid too. 

We went here years ago when I was pregnant with Wyatt, so it was new to everyone.  Annie loved that she could get down and touch all the aquariums.  They also had this cute Shark Passport thing the boys did where you got this paper to stamp with all the different kinds of sharks we saw. 
Everyone's favorite part was the tunnel you can walk through and the shark cage!  Annie was super tickled by it.
Annie cried to get out of her stroller and sit on the floor in the tunnel.  But that wasn't enough... to get the full affect she had to lay down.  I think she had the right idea!
It was a little hard to get good pics of stuff cause they turned off a bunch of lights in the exhibits cause it aws night time.  And since this is long enough already I'll share the rest of the pics later!
