The Lowry Park Zoo Boo

3 Nov

Last weekend we went to the Zoo with Paul’s buddy from work Jonathan and his girlfriend Laura!  I was sobbing to Paul the night before about how we could have taken Zoey to Zoo Boo like last year if we were home (totally dramatic of me I know) so when Jonathan and Laura mentioned there was one in Tampa they wanted to go to I was so excited!

Here’s Zo and I waiting in line – I loved her little witch costume..

The walkways were decorated to the nines with stringed Halloween lights and blow up ghosts and pumpkins, there were two haunted houses, a 3D creepy trapped in time walk through, a kiddie roller coaster and a huge bouncy house kid area – even the bug tanks had spooky decorations! It was pretty cool.

Most of the animal paths were blocked off – but we did get to pet the stingrays, see the manatees and take a peek at a few creepy bugs.  Here’s Jonathan and Laura at Stingray Bay..

We didn’t get there til after 8 – and tired little Zo did awesome. She even kept her witch hat on the whole night!  (besides it falling off when she ran around like a mad woman) Super weird for a kid who hates wearing hats – she still puts it on at home!

Thanks Jonathan and Laura for showing us that just because things here are different from home they can still be fun!

    That sounds like so much fun our zoo boo was basically a couple of pumpkins put in the animal cages. Lame. Have fun exploring your new area!
