The company I work for hasn't had a holiday party in years but we had one tonight. The party was at Reid Park Zoo in the Conservation Center.
The zoo has their Zoolights event going on in the evenings and Anthony and I walked around for a bit so I could shoot some photos. They don't have most animals out for display during Zoolights but we did see camels. The camels were giving people rides and it made me laugh when Anthony announced that he thought they were stinky. I suggested we go for a ride on one but my idea was quickly shot down. He's not the adventurous type.
At the party there was a selfie wall with some fun things to put on for a photo, there was a bar, and some raffle prizes. Anthony and I both won and I chose an envelope that had car wash coupons. Anthony received a Home Depot gift card. We'll both be able to put these items to good use.
I had fun shooting some photos and mingling with my co-workers. I also ate two cookies. That was exciting because I really like cookies.
