L,M,N,O,P-cock


Yesterday we tried to take the girls up to "Boo at the Zoo." We got the girls all dressed up in their Halloween costumes and headed up only to turn around when we saw the insane number of vehicles parked all up and down the road. Somehow, we determined it wasn't worth the hike just to get in only to have that many people inside. Therefore, we opted for a much quieter morning at the "little zoo" (also known as the Aviary). The girls loved looking at all of the birds, and Sarah was especially enamored with the free range peacocks roaming around the park.
She yelled "Hi Azul!" (the peacock from Barbie as the Island Princess) every time she saw one. So Greg decided to test her knowledge of what type of bird "Azul" is. He said, "Azul is a Pea-"
and Sarah filled in--"PEA-RANAH!"
We all got a good laugh at that, then a few minutes later Ellie decided to help. She asked Sarah if Azul was an "O" cock, or a "P" cock.

The Aviary was great. We had the whole thing basically to ourselves (with the exception of a little boy's birthday party where the guests cornered one of the peacocks and forced it to fly onto the roof of a nearby roost).

Following the Aviary, we went to the grocery store where the girls got to make bat puppets and go "trick-or-treating" in the deli.

The girls were thrilled that they got to have as much candy as they wanted, and they got plenty of attention for their costumes since they were the only little China dolls around.

And Greg and I were thrilled that we didn't have to keep track of our little bananas in the crowds of the zoo.

I saw that thing at the zoo and figured it would be crazy! That's fun you went to the aviary. The last time we were there was when Sarah was a baby. The activity sounded so fun at Dicks!
