Happy New Year!!

Hi there & Happy New Year!
I wanted to share some pictures my husband took at one of our local parks. Each year our small city does a wonderful job decorating this park with lights, lights & more lights!!!! We bought a new camera a few months ago, a shared gift for "our" birthday's. Its been a dream of mine to photograph this park at Christmas with more of a camera than our point & shoot and now we are able to! These lights are up from November til about February or March and I always marvel at their beauty when I drive by.

Encircling the park is a small ice surface where children can skate through the trees; at the edge of the park, there are firepits set up and you often see families roasting hotdogs and marshmallows, enjoying a mug of hot chocolate after their skate. Geeze, I wish I were a kid again...... :-)

This park is truly a Winter Wonderland, I sure hope you like the pictures!!
May you and your Family have a wonderful New Year!!

Beautiful photos. I live in Fort Saskatchewan and I'm sure you'll agree we brought the new year in with a beautiful, clear, sunny day! I loved how the snow glistened on the trees! Have a healthy and Happy New Year!
