We got a yearly zoo pass and love taking Rachel to the zoo! She loves feeding the parakeets and looking at the Grizzly Bears and Gorillas! It is open year around so we try to take advantage of the warm days in winter and take her there too. (Which is conveniently located in the same parking lot as the science museum).
We were able to go to Edmond, Oklahoma for Halloween with the family. We had a great time going through their "haunted forest" where they had the theme "Once upon a time" and they had different mother goose stories where they handed out candy to the kids. There were so many stories, The Little Old Lady Who Lived in a Shoe, Humpty Dumpty, Mary Mary Quite Contrary, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, Pinocchio, Rapunzel, Sword and the Stone and so many others. She loved being a COW for Halloween, completely her choice! At the end of the trail there was an open area for the kids to play games and meet a couple of characters. She threw a bean bag through a hole and won some purple vampire teeth. She loves wearing them and "scaring us". We had such a great time and we are so glad Mark was there to enjoy it with us!!

While in California, we had a girls night with Auntie Jessie. She made us an amazing chicken dinner, it was so much fun to hang out with her!! I wish I would have taken a picture of all of us eating, but of course I did not. What I do have is this video of Jessica and Rachel looking at the roaches that she and Brad feed to their chameleons. Rachel really wanted to play with them, so Mom, Jess and I got a good laugh out of it! Enjoy!

We were lucky enough to get tickets to the Harlem Globe Trotters in Bloomington. We had such a great time. Rachel loved watching the "basketball guys" do tricks and dunk the ball. She's really loves sports, so it always makes it fun to take her to something like this!
