Just thought I'd share some photos from our Zoo trip and of Trey and I dressed up for our Halloween party Friday eve.

Zero is OUT!! - in case you haven't heard
Well, you probably have heard since it happened last Thursday. We did not know thought when we went to see him at the Milwaukee Zoo on Halloween Day, Friday. Zero, the polar bear, had fallen into his moat and had been hanging out down there, unharmed, for quite some time. Updates on Zero's progress were on the local news just about everyday. The kids were anxious to go see him, so since we had off school Friday, we decided to go visit Zero at the Zoo. It was all they could talk about the whole way to the Zoo, and once we arrived, we could not get to Zero's exhibit fast enough. Fortunately for Zero, but unfortunately for us, Zero was finally out of his moat and taking a rest, off exhibit, for the day. I had heard on Thurs. AM that he was still in the moat, but had not heard that zookeepers were planning to get him out with a crane that day. They made several attempts to entice Zero to get out on his own, since they knew he could climb out if he wanted to, but it wasn't happening, and I guess they felt he had been down there long enough. After seeing the moat up close, I cannot believe he stayed down there so long. Pretty small area for such a big polar bear. Well, I am glad he made it out, and we plan to get back to see him soon.
