Halloween At The Zoo

Last weekend we were delighted to have Scott, Emily, and Cara come up for a visit. On our plans was a trip to the children's zoo in town all decorated up for Halloween fun. This is something that we had done with our children when they were younger. How exciting it was to now be taking Cara there to share in the fun with family and friends that were with us.

Who is having the most fun? Cara or grandma?

The zoo decorates each year for Halloween and offers thousands of decorated pumpkins throughout the zoo along with lights decorating the pathways. Also in the zoo there were goodies at nine trick-or-treat stations to be given to each child when a ticket was given to the one passing them out. Cara quickly figured things out and carried her ticket with her until we were at our next stop. She would then hand them her ticket, take her treat and put into her little princess bucket, tell them thank you, and head on towards the next stop. Of course, this meant no time for photos because Cara was too busy to stop. She walked all the way through the zoo never stopping to rest.

Cara and O trying to pose for photos, this was really hard for them as they wanted to get right into the zoo.

We were still trying to get photos but with so much to see and do Cara didn't want to slow down.

Our gang heading towards a tunnel that will take us to our next treat station.

Checking out some of the treats.

Mission accomplished, all treat stations visited, now it was time to head out for another surprise.

We ended the evening by stopping at a local diner and sharing two turtle sundaes.

It was a fun night and I am not sure if Cara, her parents, grand parents, or our friends had the most fun. I hope we can get together each year and take that walk through the beautiful not scary Halloween zoo.
