Monkey Exhibit: Zoo Boo 2009

Our Monkey Madness actually began last weekend at the Indianapolis Zoo Boo.  They host a great kickoff event and opportunity to get another wear out of the year’s Halloween Costumes.Our first attempt at going with Uncle Ryan and Aunt Kristy was a wash (literally),but it was a good practice run and the Mexican grub afterwards more than made up for the lack of candy. Our second attempt with Gramma and Grampa was a hit!  We didn’t go through the trouble of making the “bed float” for our visit, but a lot of other families picked up on our theme of  “Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”. 

Hope you’re in the mood to “Monkey Around”, because there’s bound to be monkey overload on the ole blog this week!

    I love the one of all four of them and the one of Brooks by himself. Awsome idea!

    Dang it! We were supposed to go to Zoo Boo too but didn't end up making it. We may have been able to see your monkeys there!

    They are all adorable! My son wore that exact same monkey costume, but I didn't get any cute pictures, because he firmly believes in running, squirming, flipping, making faces, etc. when he sees the camera.

    The "group shot with 4 two year old monkeys"; definitely the "group shot"! It belongs on the cover of a magazine. Superb photography of those precious monkeys.
