Boo at the Zoo

The SF Zoo sponsors a "boo at the zoo" day where you dress up your kid and take him to see the animals.  At one point, a lion got very mad.  It may have been my orange hair or the meat they hid in a pumpkin (no joke).  In any case, most of the day passed uneventfully - but we did get a Wallace and Grommit flashlight which is about as cool as you can get in trick or treat land.

This brings us the the lion suit that Nana made for Declan.  What a great Halloween suit!  Nana made the whole thing, which is awesome.  Declan loved it.  Well...  He loved the tail.  He refused to wear the lion mane unless he was able to roll a pumpkin (something he is not usually allowed to do).  Joey, our good friend featured elsewhere, loved to wear his mane and they were truly lion brothers.  We managed to get one shot of them together.
