Boo and New

First, the Boo.

This is my clan all dressed up for Boo at the Zoo.  We have an Indian, an Army Man, one Super-girl, and a tiny TCU Cheerleader.  Oh, and Bear dressed up in her new Tinkerbell costume that she received on her birthday.

The Fort Worth Zoo is an amazing place to view live animals, and every year they take it up a notch by offering Boo at the Zoo.  Your kids get to dress up, play games, decorate pumpkins, trick or treat, and get a jump start on the Halloween fun.  We took full advantage of our flexible homeschool schedule and went in the middle of the day today!  It was a hit.

Allow my experience to perhaps save you some trouble if you plan on going.

  • Fake firearms are not allowed in the zoo.  Army Man had to check his weapon at the Guest Services desk.
  • The zoo will provide you and your children with treat sacks so you don’t need to bring your own.
  • Everyone has to pay $3 on top of the price of zoo admission {so thankful for my mother-in-law’s gift of zoo membership on days like today}.  Even if you are a thirty-something mom whose sole purpose in attending Boo at the Zoo is to chaperone your children, you have to pay $3.

The games are really fun, and you get a treat just for trying.  All the game treats are non-candy, which I appreciated.

Each Boo at the Zoo guest receives six tickets that can be redeemed for one serving of candy each.  I also appreciate that there is a limit to how many sweet treats each child can stockpile while at Boo at the Zoo.

One ticket can be redeemed at the pumpkin decorating tent.  Games, candy, and a craft…all for $3.

They also have animal shows every 30 minutes, clowns walking around doing magic tricks, and food and beverages for sale.  It’s a great fall scene.

The best part {in my opinion} is that we were able to play every game, use all our candy tickets, and decorate a pumpkin in one hour without rushing through anything.  The kids had a blast, we spent time at the zoo, and everyone was home in time for naps.  How lovely.

Second, the New.

My Recipe page has a new format.  If you look at the menu options across the top of the website, you will see the “Recipe” tab.  If you click on it, it will take you to a page where all the recipes from all my posts are listed by category.  If you click on a particular recipe, it will link you to the post where that recipe was introduced.  A printable copy of the recipe can be downloaded at the end of the post.

As I continue to share new recipes they will be added to the Recipe page.  Hopefully this is a helpful resource for you.  I would love any feedback you may have that would make this particular page more helpful or user-friendly.

Hope you have a happy weekend!
