The only good thing about a chilly day at the zoo is that the animals tend to be a bit more active. For instance, this snow leopard, who, of all the times we've been to the zoo has never been doing anything but sitting in a tree or napping:
Many of the others were up and about, too:
It's hard to tell in these pics, but the orangutan was hanging out right up against the glass, and even put his hand up a few times and was just staring at the boys..it was the cutest thing ever!
Jake was all about posing as a ninja for much of the day....
And we ran into the State Farm bear, so you know our "Jake from State Farm" was super excited!
We ended our visit with a walk through the aquarium before eating lunch and heading home:
After a very, very brief stop at home, we headed out to the next Halloween activity....Trunk or Treat at church! This was our first time going, and it was a really cute little party! They had the whole gymnasium area filled with tables that the kids could walk around to....some of the tables were just passing out treats, while others had arts and crafts and games. There was even a bouncy house outside!
