Boo at the Zoo

We went to the Boo at the Zoo this year and it was adorable! We are members, so it was very inexpensive and worth the drive. The kids wore costumes and the zoo really treated us to a special event!

Blake was Finn, from Adventure Time!

Taylor was a good little witch!

Blake picked me a flower at the fountain

Since we went on a Wednesday evening, it wasn't crowded so we got to really take our time and explore the zoo at night.  Their were craft stations here and there, Halloween lights, spooky snack shops, and "haunted" rides. There were bubbles blowing all over the place with lights strung everywhere. Taylor loved running through all the bubbles the best!  They got to ride the haunted carousel and then we headed to the Children's zoo where we got to hear ghost stories around a fire, and see a pirate show with live animals in the act. 

Driving the zoo train!

these things were opening and grabbing at you in the
garden as you walked by...Billy held Tay up and
she thought it was going to gobble her up!
Taylor the vet, looking at real animal x-rays
Blake made a masterpiece cookie!

The very best part, we saved for last.  The "only enter if you are 12 years or older" exhibits.  Of course, we took our kiddos in with us and it really was scary.  The first one had gigantic venus fly traps trying to eat you alive!  Blake was leading the group with us and we happened upon a huge garden we stared with curiosity, it jumped at us...we both screamed like girls!
The last tour we did was another one for 12 years and up, they took us into a cave area with a swamp.  A crazy lady led us through to "swamp woman", she was creepy, but it was the hidden Big Foot jumping out of the woods to run after us and chase us away!  We jumped and ran a bit, but there were kids, literally bawling with fright.  We love a good scare! 

This was an awesome night to spend with the family, I am so glad we decided to try it out!
