~What We Did For Our First Ride In The Truck~

Picture I Took Tonight
Jacksonville, Florida
November 29, 2017 8:23pm CST
Hey everyone, I hope your having a good evening! This picture is what we did when we went in our truck the first time tonight. =) It was amazing! This entire neighborhood has lights on their houses! It is gorgeous and amazing. It looks so much better in person but this picture is the best I could do to show all of you. The kids get SO excited when we go and this neighborhood is only 5 minutes from us! This was the best thing we could have done for our first trip as a family! What have you been up to this evening? Picture is of the neighborhood

That looks wonderful! What a great way to go out in the new truck together for the first time. I love it when a neighbourhood bands together like that. We know a couple who live in a neighbourhood where they have a Christmas lighting party, everyone turns their lights on on that same night and they walk around and look at each other's homes. Its a really nice little community feel to something like that.

I could relate it with our festival of lights. Trucks are parking near the public plaza loaded with several people or even families who came from neighboring towns to witness our festival of Lights every December 15.

Some neighborhood displays are absolutely amazing @LovingMyBabies . Can you imagine the electric bills?

@nanette64 They are! It's funny you mention that because as we were driving through some of the home owners were sitting outside. My husband said thank you for doing this, God loves you and I'm sorry for your electric bill!

@Blondie2222 I do too! =) Yes we love doing this. And it's really awesome that one neighborhood does all of the lights so we don't have to search the town.

One of the the things I miss most of all about Christmas is taking my kids out to see the lights.

Oh that's GREAT! Every year I make my husband drive me around to look at Christmas lights, but I'm getting car sick now, so I don't think i can do it this year, but I'm a big kid and I love it.

We use to do the tour of Christmas lights in NYC sometimes, but only when my uncle used to take us when I was little. My kids have never gone on one.
