Candy Cane Lane

When I was younger one of my favorite things to do around this time of year was to drive through Candy Cane Lane to see all the houses lit up. Me, my brother and cousins would all gather up in the back of my dads or uncle's truck, wearing our pajamas.
I was so excited when my husband looked up places to see lights in our neighborhood and Candy Cane Lane popped up ... 3 blocks away from us! I have no idea if this is the same place I use to go as a kid (it is the valley though) but I was still SUPER excited. We actually took the stroller and walked the neighborhood as soon as it got dark. And by the time we left there were so many cars driving through the streets, bumper to bumper, kids hanging out of sun roofs, it really reminded me of when I was their age.  I'm pretty sure I enjoyed it a bit more than Babe but maybe one day he will be as excited as me.

Can you believe there is house behind there! They definitely outdid themselves.


  1. That's sounds so fun! I have yet to check out some cool lights this season - I know in SLC temple square is the place to go. Though it's never as exciting as when you're a kid, I'm sure it's really fun to see your child experience a favorite memory! Merry Christmas Sarah! xo

    1. It's true, when your a kid everything is so much bigger and better. Merry Christmas to you too!!
