This is our third year attending our local Boo at the Zoo. It is always a good time, and tends to be the first time Aria gets to wear her Halloween costume as well. Although the first year we didn't realize it was a costume thing until we arrived. Now we know!
Aria was so excited to go trick or treating this year. She even woke up in the middle of the night crying that she wanted to go trick or treating the next day. Perhaps we made it sound too exciting. That was the night before our trip to the corn maze so I talked to her about the fun things they had at it. She seemed okay with that and went back to sleep.
So, she was definitely ready for our Boo at the Zoo trick or treating! We met up with Aria's godfather and his family, plus another friend. We were the scarecrow, dalmatian, and hot dog. They were Luke Skywalker, Yoda, R2D2, and Chewbacca. Always a fun bunch. Baby Olly was very confused by my nose, it took me half the night to get him to smile at me again.
We trick or treated - Aria was very annoyed when anybody would put the candy in her bucket because she wanted to do that part herself, played some games, took many many pictures, rode the train, entered the costume contest - Aria's dalmatian didn't win but our friends won for the family themed portion, trick or treated some more, and then Aria said she was tired and wanted to go home. She was a tired puppy. The mark of a good night!
