Boo at the Zoo and a festival too!

Fall is my absolute most favorite season!  It is also the busiest!  There are so many fun things to do like Georgia football games, visit pumpkin patches, pick apples, dress up for Halloween and more.  I always find myself cramming as much as possible into these fall weekends because there are just not enough of them!

This weekend was no exception.  We planned to see an outdoor movie our neighborhood was coordinating on Friday night, take the kids to their school fall festival on Saturday morning, move appliances from our old house to our new house Saturday afternoon, watch the football game Saturday night, and join some friends at the zoo on Sunday.  We ended up skipping the movie on Friday night but everything else we did!  We are exhausted!  But we had a ball doing it.  More to come next weekend I am sure...

From the kids' school fall festival ~ Every room had arts and crafts or snacks for the kids.  Each had a fall theme like using popcorn and fall confetti to make music shakers, or using Nilla wafers and Hershey Kisses to make acorns.  One project had the kids making spin art with fall colors.  Another project had them using pine-cones to make turkeys.  Some of the rooms even had fun stuff like face painting and balloon animals.

After all the arts and crafts just some plain old fun!
From Boo at the Zoo ~ The weather was absolutely perfect for a trip to the zoo!  We got there early so it wasn't very crowded.  Most of the animals were out and active so the kiddos had a blast seeing all the animals from their books.  We saw flamingos, parakeets, warthogs, meerkats, a rhino, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, an elephant, a lion, a tiger, monkeys, gorillas, bears, pandas, kangaroos, and more.  The kids haven't stopped talking about it yet!  We visited the zoo with another couple we know from college and their adorable two year old.  Fun, fun, fun!

As Lucas says "mingos!"

Watching the elephant run back to his hideout

They are pretty sure one of these does not belong in the nest

This panda was actually grinning

Too tired to even eat his snack
