Sunday Snapshot - Zoo Boo 2010

Last October we decided to take advantage of some great weather and our membership to the Houston Zoo.  Little did we know it was Zoo Boo.  We were not dressed, we had no buckets, but we did have loads of fun.  This year, we were determined to continue this and make it a family tradition.  Complete with costumes and candy receptacles.  So, we loaded up the car, bought some much-needed new camera batteries, some snacks and headed off to the zoo with Wolverine and Batman in tow.

We could not have asked for better fall weather here in Houston.  So, we made the rounds and tick-or-treated, saw lots of animals out and about (also enjoying the aforementioned weather, and even got in 2 rounds of the Dinosaur exhibit!  Of course you know I went into this planning to get some pictures for the Sunday Snapshot post.  With Amy's camera up and working (a long story for another post) and mine too I was sure we would get several good shots, and we did!  Here are some of the best, both natural and edited.  Enjoy!
