"Boo at the Zoo"

This past Saturday along with my friend Holly, her two boys Aidan and Cole, Uncle Blake, Aunty Liz, Cousin Andrew and Aunty Shanna we took Gabe to "Boo at the Zoo". The zoo was CRAZY busy, but it was so much fun to dress Gabe in his little penguin costume and take him to see the animals. The zoo had trick or treating tables, halloween decorations and characters dressed up in Halloween costumes. It was also lots of fun to see other kids in their costumes, some people are so creative. The weather was absolutely perfect for the zoo and the boys had a blast. Holly and her family have season passes to the zoo so she was an awesome guide (Thanks Holly!). Gabe's favorite animal is the Giraffe and Holly took us into a place I didn't even know existed where you can see the Giraffes close up. Gabe loved it. Thanks to the warmer weather the animals were pretty active. We loved watching the penguins move around and swim and especially enjoyed the primates. Since we visited the zoo last April they also have a new attraction. They have a really neat hand painted carousel that the kids can ride on. It is really quite beautiful to look at.
