Halloween at the Zoo

Saturday late afternoon we headed to the zoo just down the street from our house for a Halloween at the zoo or Pumpkin Festive party that they were hosting.  We have been driving past the sign that they had the street advertising it for the last week and half everyday when I drove the girls to school and when we came home from school, so I was gently reminded everyday about the event.

The weather was beautiful for an afternoon in October unlike North Dakota where I grew up and they have snow already.

Time to start carving pumpkins or in this case gourds.

They definitely had enough pumpkins to judge from. I wish I could be half as creative as some of these were.

Yeah, a bright pink unicorn costume is not good wear when you are trying to play hide and seek.

Then to top the evening off since we were all having a good time together a few families and us went to a local pizza place for a late dinner.  Yes, pickles, corn, chicken and red peppers makes one heck of a good pizza!

Once again another fun day for the family. Halloween is still something new to Poland but you are seeing it more and more here.  

Now let’s see what other Halloween goodies happen this week!
