Haunt the Zoo
Rather than trudge from house to house in the dark Samantha and I took Vivian to the annual Haunt the Zoo event at the Oklahoma City Zoo. I had never been to the event before and it was a winner. Various local companies sponsor displays and hand out candy on a loop through the zoo. You don't get to see much in the way of animals because the zoo is dark and you have to stay on prescribed route, but the silhouettes of three lions looking over the crowd from their enclosure were memorable. We were fortunate enough to have perfect weather, and approximately a bazillion people turned out to enjoy the evening. Samantha and I both felt like we got our exercise for the day, with a long walk through the zoo passing Vivian back and forth between us. She didn't like to walk too much because of the crowd.
