My friend Julie and I decided that it would be really fun taking Kinsley and Ellie together for their first Boo at the Zoo. This is an annual event at the Knoxville Zoo where they have lots of volunteers dress up in costumes of all kinds and hand out candy for some "trick-or-treat"ing while seeing the animals of the Zoo. They have lots of stuff for kids to do...so much that we didn't even get to some of the activities in the Kids Cove due to starvation and cold weather. It was completely stimulating for a toddler to walk around, seeing characters they like come to life or different expo's going on. I tested out my loose cannon of a daugher and let her walk around with Kinsley. Keeping her moving was the challenge! She wanted to stop and stare at each volunteer or eat her treats. Kinsley was great at holding her bag for candy, but Ellie just wanted to eat all of hers. The weather was pretty cold (notice the extra layering on the girls for the evening) but overall we had fun. This will definitely be an annual event, hopefully with the Schaefer's!
