Look at the pretty lights!

Last night we decided to go see some Christmas lights at a lovely display in Pittsburgh.  Since it was a driving tour, we decided to take Dexter.  He was such a good dog!  There was quite a wait once we got into the stream of traffic entering the light display.  We were in traffic for nearly an hour before reaching the lights.

He started to get a little weary of only seeing brake lights.
So we decided to let him sit in the backseat like a big boy.  This was a first for him.
He did really well, with the exception of once or twice trying to dig through the seat.  But no potty accidents or problems whatsoever.  Daddy even said this made him want to take Dexter more places, now that we saw how good he could be in the backseat.

Eventually he did get a little bored, so we found a ball to keep him occupied.  It worked well.

Once we got to the lights, he was not as excited as I thought he would be, he fussed, mostly because I was not holding him.  

I was taking pictures, and had the window down, so we made him sit in the back, and he was not a fan of not being up in front with us.  But, he did get to sit with me up front on the ride home.  He promptly snuggled into me and fell asleep.  

All in all, it was a pretty good family outing.
