A couple weekends ago we went to the Philadelphia Zoo where they had an event called "Boo at the Zoo." The kids could dress up and go trick or treating. This was the first time I've seen so many people at the zoo and amazingly we bumped into Zi and her family there. It was pretty crazy that we had to park at another venue's lot. To top it off one of the trolley shuttles broke down and we ended up waiting over an hour to be picked up. One bad trick! Fortunately the kids were in good spirits and enjoyed their first time on a trolley.
As a treat/apology we got a pass for free unlimited rides in the Zoo. The kids enjoyed a horseback ride and carousel rides. We spent a good amount of time at the primate house where we got up close with some of the gorillas. There was one point when one of the male gorillas ran right towards us. Such a scary sight for me but N was not phased at all. He loved it and stood there watching them. He probably could have stayed all day.
We got some fun freebies and activities, then went trick or treating. It was really crowded this year that we had to wait in lines at each store. I think most parents came knowing that Halloween may be a wash out because of Hurricane Sandy. What's with the weather? Last year we had a snowstorm and now a hurricane. Rain, snow or delays the kids had fun at both events.
What fun activities did you do for Halloween this year?
Did Hurricane Sandy effect you?
