Boo at the Zoo

Happy Halloween! This is one of my very favorite holidays...I love the colors, the costumes, the candy and the list goes on. I especially like that it doesn't stress me out like Christmas with the baking, the shopping, the wrapping...okay, you get the idea. So, I will be blogging a lot of Halloween pictures this week. My apologizes now for boring you.

Our zoo has this fundraiser called "Boo at the Zoo", which raises a ton of money to feed those animals over the winter months.
Here is John Chapo, the CEO/President of the Zoo. Every year we get our pictures taken with the wizard. It's so much like photos with Santa...truly part of the holiday custom.
This is also Tyler's first year volunteering at Boo at the Zoo. He worked Tuesday and Friday nights handing out treat bags and pulling the chains, so no one would walk in front of the moving train.
We realized after the first year that if you go at the end of the night you don't have to stand in any lines to get the candy. The event closes at 8pm and we began at 7:45.
We even found our friends off of Sesame Street.
Every booth sets up their station to look unique.
I am going to be sad when my kids are too old for Boo at the Zoo. Luckily, we have a few more years with Grant. This is one of my favorite events to scrapbook!
