On Sat night we thought we would take the kids for a trip to Heartwood Acres. First let me say that this is not a trip for the weak at heart at least with 4 yes I said 4 kids in the back seat of my F-150 Ford, the back seat is really nice for 3 people but 4! How many times can you listen to she’s touching me, or get off my leg? How about how long do we have to sit in this line to look at lights?

I called my sister to get directions and she said it would take about one and a half hours to make it there, she was a little wrong on a lot of accounts. First it only took about 45 minutes to drive to the town of Heartwood, but then there was this line leading up to the lights, which you guessed it we sat in for the next hour and a half!

Was it all worth it in the end? I guess if you have never seen these lights, then yes it is worth the trip. Would I ever go back? I think so but maybe just every 3 years or so to see if anything has changed.

My last observation; If you go and see these lights and you want to take some pictures, turn off your flash. I saw a lot of people taking pictures with there flash on, and what happens is that you are blasting out the very thing you are shooting. You want the black around the lights so that they will show up on your final print. Ah rookies!

See you next time!
