Week Forty-Three

This week, we took Nora to "Boo at the Zoo". It's a Halloween event put on each year by the Knoxville Zoo where they set up candy stations along with people in costume and animal exhibits for everyone, young and old, to enjoy. We went last year, and Nora loved it, so it will probably be a part of our annual Halloween tradition from now on.

Nora's friend, Amelia and Penelope, were also there. All 3 were adorable in their costumes (Butterfly, Little Red Ridinghood, and Scooby Doo), and although they were all also a little bit sleepy (no one wanted to take a nap earlier in the day), they had a great time running around, collecting candy, waving to and posing with characters, and dancing at the big finale.

Checking out the camels with Daddy
She even took a turn petting the camel
More cheesy smiles
Sometimes even butterflies need to be carried
Checking out the big fire truck- the fire fighter was amused as she pretended to drive the truck and said "Weewoooweeewoo", her best imitation of the sound a fire engine siren.

Visiting with some princesses and one evil queen

When we left the zoo, we decided we needed to grab dinner. We went to Calhouns on the River, which seemed like a good idea, but the service was soooooooooo slow that it ended with Brad having to carry a tired and crying Nora out of the restaurant while I paid for our food. She did calm down in the car, though, and she was happy once we got home and got her into her bed. It was one of the first nights in a while that she didn't wake up and call for one of us in the middle of the night, so I guess she really was worn out.
