And Then

Saturday after lunch in Mt. Adams we went half a mile to Krohn Conservatory.

The Christmas display is always wonderful, with warmth and humidity and the gorgeous flowers. Every year it looks much the same and that's part of the charm. The traditional train display features landmarks from the streets of Cincinnati.

A dulcimer group was playing on that Saturday afternoon and people were clustered them around them, singing.

The Christmas tree had handmade ornaments made by park volunteers. The show goes until January 3 - I'd like to go back and see it again.

In the evening we wint to the Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo, along with Steph and Nora and Bridget, Reza, Helen, and Jack.

This was the second trip for Nora, the first on a warmer less crowded evening, but she was a trooper in her stroller with the Scooby Doo blanket wrapped around her.

It was fun to go, and after a couple of chilly hours, it was fun to get back in the warm van too. Steph and Nora stopped at the house for awhile and when she left Nora whispered to her mom, "I want to stay." I wish I'd asked if she could.
