tree lightings

It's that time of year again: time to plug in the Christmas tree lights around the city.

On Wednesday, we made the long haul to Rittenhouse Square to meet up with some friends.

Heidi ran around with Joss's blue ball, but Lydia snuggled in the stroller.

She didn't even want to get out of the stroller for a picture in front of the lit tree.

Tonight we went around the corner to our local tree lighting (which is a hilarious "tree" of garland and lights wrapped around a fountain to create a rather wide Christmas "tree"). Once again, Lydia stayed snuggled in the stroller with her hot chocolate and popcorn while Heidi ran around, enjoying the sites.

On the way home we walked up the Miracle on South 13th Street.

The city is full of lights normally, but it's quite the festive place during the Christmas season. And we haven't even been to the Macy's Christmas Light Show or the Comcast Holiday Spectacular yet!
