Boo At the Zoo
This weekend, the zoo had a VERY fun (and crowded) event for Halloween called, "Boo at the Zoo." I was so excited to take the family because the theme was super heroes and I remembered some GREAT photos from my friend Rene's Facebook page last year when they all dressed up as The Incredibles. So, I put together 6 costumes for our family to look incredible!
I had to work Saturday from 10:30 to 3, so we thought we'd go right when it opened at 9 am and stay an hour and then leave. Well, we drove the 20 minutes to get there and when we arrived there were SO many people that by the time we waited in line to get into the zoo, we would have had to turn around and come right back so I could get to work. So, after much explaining and reassuring that we would return after mommy was done with work, we left.
We did return after my shift was over and spent around 2 hours trick or treating. I can't tell you how many compliments we got on our "look". People were constantly stopping us to take our pictures! It was funny! The girls got a good stash of candy and I felt pretty incredible that I pulled it all off ( with the help of my handsome, incredible super-hero husband!)
