McCormick Railroad Park Christmas Lights

Merry Christmas! Tomorrow, we’re planning a low-key day with our little family. Our kids are still so young to really ‘get’ Christmas, but Rocco is starting to catch on.

He recently found our Santa hat, and likes to wear that around the house, chanting ‘Santa hat, Santa hat’.

He’s also really into Christmas lights. On the rare occasion we are out past his normal bedtime to see Christmas lights, he repeats “mommy, a lights…”.

One such night, we headed to Scottsdale to the McCormick Railroad Park Christmas lights event.

They had train rides through their elaborate light displays, a carousel, and pictures with Santa. They also had a large model train exhibit.

This event was perfect for Rocco. He got to ride on his first carousel with grandma, and we walked around the park enjoying the light displays.

Rocco was most mesmerized by the in-door model trains. I think he would have stayed there watching them for hours, if we had let him.

It was a really fun night, and a fun way for my parents to get to spend some quality time with their grandkids. The next morning, Rocco just kept saying, “a choo choo train, a Gam, a Papa (what he calls my parents)”. This is definitely an event we’ll go to again next year. If you’re in and around Scottsdale, I highly suggest you check it out.

What are you doing to celebrate the holidays this year?
