Boo at the Zoo – Brookfield Zoo Adventures

Last weekend we took a little trip to the zoo when my friend was in from out of town. We hadn’t been to the zoo in a while (and for me and michael “a while” not being to the zoo is like 4-8 weeks haha) and also it was the first day of Brookfield’s Zoo “Boo at the Zoo”. All the kids that were there were dressed up adorably, we almost felt kind weird for not being in costume. Everything in the zoo was decorated all Halloweeny and it was such a great time!

Now yessss that’s right, we got to see a little kitten snow leopard! He was playing with this momma all adorably just like my kittys play. hahaha it was absolutely amazing to see because I was looking forward to being able to see the cub : ) … oh, and that whole huge group of foxes… they were all dressed up completely different but still kinda creepy to us.. and finally, thanks babe, for taking this lovely picture of me with my eyes closed and not taking another! ; ) haha love ya you impatient picture taker you.

Also, that morning, we finally used our lovely little mini waffle stick maker. It was so much fun making a delicious batch of sticks… we ended up making like, a ton of sticks, but we found that putting them in a baggie in the fridge ends up making them a great little snack for anytime throughout the day, so nothing went to waste. We had a great little breakfast to start off our wonderful day at the zoo!
