Holiday Lights Through the Innocent Eyes of a Baby

Leave a comment

My grandson, Tanner, is 13 months old and lives in sunny San Diego. When they came to visit for the holiday he had to be introduced to the cold upstate New York temperatures and heavy clothing. What a trooper he was!

While they were here we went to visit the Albany Festival of Lights. Although I live in the Capital Region I have never visited the park to see the lights. This was a treat for all.

As we made our way through the park we decided Tanner would have a better view if he sat in the front seat unrestrained by his cars. To all those concerned about his safety we went slower than a walk so he was safe. I sat in the back seat where I had a perfect view of his little face peeking out the window. Below is a photo is of Tanner becoming a little braver and his Mom realizing he is no longer in the car seat and needs to be bundled up. Still a bit blurry as I become familiar with my new camera.

The pic below says it all. My photography skills improved and Tanner’s face shows his pure, unfiltered enjoyment.

Look at this little face. He is totally mesmerized by all of the lights.

The display was beautiful with moving lights and even a sliver of the moon glowing in the sky above the Washington Park Lake House.

It was a wonderful experience to witness the lights for the first time through my grandson’s eyes. I am forever grateful that I shared that experience with my daughter and son-in-law.

The holidays are over and my daughter and her family are back in San Diego where it is warm. I remain in upstate New York where the temperature was 1 degree at 10 am and is now a whopping 9 degrees but I have the photos and memories to keep me warm.

Love and Light,
Sandy
