Last Friday we went to the St. Louis Zoo for their Boo at the Zoo with several families from the kids school. It was a little hectic getting there right after work, but we had a great time! Here is Nathan and Autumn on a rock in front of the entrance to the Zoo. I love that the kids get to wear their Halloween costumes SO much before Halloween, they sure do get a lot of wear out of them!
Here is a photo of all of the kids together at the beginning of the night. Nathan is the Ninja on the far left and Autumn is 2 from the left, dressed at Rapunzel. It was so neat to get such a big group of kids together!
Apparently, Rapunzel is all the rave this year still. I see THREE Rapunzels!
This is Nathan and a friend from school with the name Nathan, too! I think it is funny how they are kind of sitting the same way.
The kids being silly, I love how I got all of the school kids in this shot.
Looking in the aquarium…
They had some spooky areas set up for you to walk through and it was a downplayed haunted house. Autumn didn’t care for it, but Nathan loved it! They did have a littl fairy area set up with some workers dressed as fairies, bubbles and lights galore! Now, that was Autumn’s cup of tea!
They had a REALLY nice craft this year, they gave each child a little mound of sculpting clay and they colored it and put beads and pipe cleaners in it to make it look like a spider.
Nathan with his spider. The craft was the last thing we did for the night and you can tell he looks tired in this photo! It was a late night, but so worth keeping them up past their bed times.
A close up of Nathan and Autumn’s spiders. They also hit up the machine that makes a design on a penny. Brian gave all the kids two quarters and a penny so that they could all make a penny with a design on it.
