2: Dad, my twin brother Joey, and I put on our big coats, and boots because Dad is taking us to see something special.
4: We kiss Mom good-bye, and start our walk through the forest, and up the hill. It's a beautiful night tonight,and Dad says we should stay quiet if we want to see any animals.
6: Joey, and I put our feet into Dad's big footprints, to follow him up the hill. The snow is so deep my legs disappear.
9: The moon lights our way though the forest. We hear the faint sound of an owl, and I get a little scared.
10: A bunny scampers across the trail as we near the top of the hill. Once the trees clear away, I can see the stars. There are a lot more than I thought there were.
13: We reach the top of the hill, sit, and wait for the surprise that Dad took us to see.
15: Then suddenly! A flicker of purple, and green streaks drift across the sky. I sit there in awe not able to take my eyes off beautiful lights.
17: We watch the lights that Dad calls " Northern Lights", for a while. Then he says that we should start to head back, for Mom has hot chocolate waiting. I stand up, take one last glance at the lights, and follow Dad, and Joey back down the hill.
