They encourage the little ones to dress up and trick or treat at the zoo. So we put Bennett in her costume, not knowing how she would react to be dressed up...and our little monkey did great. She loved looking at herself in the mirror before we left, and once we got there she people watched and took it all in. She did a lot of pointing and staring with her mouth open. We were going to go into the "Planet of the Apes" exhibit where people are dressed up like gorillas and scare people, but the person outside of the door did a test with Bennett, and she failed. She didn't even get the opportunity to say "Boo" before Bennett grabbed me for dear life and was visually shaken. We quickly left for something more low key.
It was cute to see her trick or treat, and she quickly got the hang of it. I guess she is going to take after her mommy with her love of free stuff because Steve said she loved hanging her bag out and watching them drop the goodies in! Though she hasn't had candy before, she loved digging through her bag like she was checking out the merchandise.
Preston slept through most of it, but he awoke at the end for a couple of photo opportunities. They had an Alabama - Auburn photo booth, so we had to partake. Bennett enjoyed the huge blow-up of Big Al (Alabama's mascot). After an hour and half of fun, mommy and daddy had enough of the crowds, so we headed home.
