Recap: Boo at the Zoo

Okay, so, Boo at the Zoo was like two weeks ago…  But I wasn’t able to retrieve the photos until my father-in-law took pity on me and loaned me his camera.  I was able to use my memory stick in his camera upload to my heart’s content.  Yeah!  Without further ado, I give you a recap of our zoo’s Halloween celebration.

Here are my boys waiting to go into the African portion of the zoo.  Unfortunately the giraffes and rhinos were asleep for the night by the time we arrived.  The boys did manage to score some candy and gift certificates for free kids’ meals at Bob Evans though.  We’ve never eaten at a Bob Evans.  Is it good?

Here’s my mom (Yaya) with Wildman.  She bought him a flashing necklace thing that I was soon thankful for having.  It helped us keep track of him in the crowds.

The boys played some games that were set up on the banquet hall’s deck.

You may have noticed that Cutie Pie was not screaming and whining in his dragon costume.  He totally forgot that he had it one once we strapped him in his car seat and headed out to the zoo.  He was such a good sport about it all evening.  Of course, trick-or-treating does tend to take one’s mind of one’s troubles…

And Yaya was there to make everything great too.  I’m sure my mom would love to know that I photographed her rear end and put it on the Internet.  Shhhh.  Don’t tell 🙂

Big Red decided to help boost his lawn care business by sponsoring a booth this year.  His castle was pretty cool.  It had little cut out windows in the walls where he put photos of his landscapes.   Big Red couldn’t take credit for for it though.  Steph’s sister’s boyfriend, Dude, designed it, built it, set it up and stored it.

Check out this carved pumpkin.  They were set up on poles throughout the zoo.  They looked so pretty glowing at night.

That’s about all I’ve got from Boo.  I could have shared a photo of Steph’s sister (my cousin, Jo) dressed up as a slutty bee handing out candy at Big Red’s castle but I’ll spare you.  That’s my family!  We have some members who are a tad inappropriate 🙂  We’ll keep them anyway.  They keep things interesting…
