We had a few Halloween parties before the big day - first up, Trunk or Treat at the kids' school last Friday (Hailey's preschool, Tyson's after-school program).  We loved this event because it was fun, short, and sweet.  I think we were there for 30 minutes and did everything there was to do!

checking out the fire truck that was there (ninja is in stealth mode behind the butterfly princess)

On Saturday, we headed to Steve's company picnic, which just happened to be at the Zoo this year, and also happened to be during Zoo Boo... perfect!  The kids got to wear their costumes again, and got airbrush tattoos, and spoiled with cotton candy and other goodies.

After we hung out at the picnic for awhile, we did our usual carousel ride, checked out some of the animals, and then our friends Doug and Amy suggested riding the paddleboats.  We've been there so many times and have never thought of doing that!  It was fun - at one point we raced, and guess who won?  Not the guys boat!

Girls boat! She had fun, promise!

There's my happy girl

Guys boat!  Tyson had fun steering them around :)

The kids on our every-visit train ride. First time riding together.

Hey! We actually took a picture together! Even if it was a self-portrait :)
