Boo at the Zoo



This year Dan's mama invited us to join her on her wonderful {Grandparent Pass} to Hogle Zoo's "Boo at the Zoo". If you have a grandma, ask her to get a grandparent's pass to the zoo (then she can take you for free like ours can. Love that).



The Boo at the Zoo event was so much fun! Local businesses set up booths around the park and were there handing out candy and treats to all the trick or treating kids. Cream O' Weber was handing out chocolate milk and eggnog. Some cow from somewhere was giving everybody string cheese (each of the twins ate three). And Village Inn was serving pie! There were kids and parents in the most hilarious and adorable costumes. My favorite was a man dressed like The Man in the Yellow Hat, and his son was Curious George. So cute, right?



The kids had a blast. Especially Maggie because I finally took her into the reptile house even though it creeps me out a little and smells like my 7th grade PE clothes (that I never took home to wash because I was sure that I would forget to bring them back, thus getting marked down for not dressing for the day which I was sure would earn me an F on my report card or maybe an A- which to me would have been just as bad as an F. A majorly stressful situation to be sure).



I'm hoping to make Boo at the Zoo a yearly Halloween tradition.

Yes, many of us do confront our fears at the zoo, so it's perfectly appropriate to go there on Halloween. Personally, I find giraffes very soothing.

Looks like a good time. I am so glad our zoo is finally improving the exhibits. Perhaps we'll have to hit this next year.
