Family Fun at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

Wildlights at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

Today I'm sharing highlights from one of my favorite Holiday traditions in Columbus, OH - Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. My post is over on Mom's Guide to Travel. Go check it out!

How to Outdo Clark Griswold


Sorry, Clark. I do believe you've been outdone by Pete Basala in Hammond, Indiana.
For more than 20 years, Pete has decorated his Northwest Indiana home for the Holiday season.
This was our first time visiting the massive display that has lights and inflatables galore! In fact, the display is so large that a few of Pete's neighbors allow him to use their front yards.
Upon driving up to the Basala's home it became apparent that this was not one of those displays you simply drive past slowly. If you really want to get the full experience you should park and take a stroll through Peteyville.
Doll Baby kept running from one area to the next excited to check out each Christmas treasure. She shrieked in pure delight when she spotted Santa!

After checking out Peteyville, we headed back to our car and listened to the display narration on 88.5 FM. It was filled with facts ranging from their weekly electric costs to the amount of amps from their dedicated power feed. 

Here's a short video I took as we drove off to head back home. Take a gander!

If you're up for a road trip or are in the area be sure to check out Peteyville.
