"Gathering @ The Zoo Boo Bash" :S.M.A.A.R.T. Mom's October "Mommy & Me Time-Out "

What a wonderful time we had at the Zoo Boo Bash. So sorry some of you couldn't join us.....maybe next year:) To the moms that did join me, I would like to just say "Thank You". It's always easier and more fun when you have a good friend with you or more in this case:) Great Costumes by the way! I do  have some pictures to share with everyone. Hope you enjoy them.
Please don't forget to join S.M.A.A.R.T. Mom's TEAM for the upcoming Autism Speaks Walk November 12th. It's still not too late to join us for the walk or to make a donation for the cause. Look forward to seeing you there! Talk to you then. Take Care.

"The Zoo Isn't Just Looking @ the Animals Anymore:Video & Pictures" :The weather will be cooler soon. It's now October but still very comfortable weather. So before it gets cold thought I'd give my Boo Bear a special treat this time when we went to the zoo.

What a WONDERFUL Day! Went to the Zoo this morning with our notebook and pen in hand:) Dustin loves to write down the animals he sees and check them off. I started this a while back when I realized my Boo Bear was afraid of animals. The Zoo has been very theraputic in regards to him feeling more comfortable around animals. I started buying an annual family pass so I could bring him there more often and without the major expense. In addition to the Zoo animals, the zoo has really grown for many other things to do now then when we started coming almost thirteen yrs ago. There is a small train ride, a merry-go-round,a stabalized bungee jumper, a splash zone area with changing rooms, and much more. Well today considering we are in Oct. now I thought it would be nice to let him play in the splash area ( 84* & sunny as can be). He had a fantastic time! I really hope to see some of my S.M.A.A.R.T.Moms Oct 30th for the Zoo Boo Bash. If you want to even join us again to the zoo before that, let me know. We try to go on Sat's. I know you & your son/daughter will have a great time! But if that doesn't convince you maybe this video I had to share with you may at least bring a Smile to your face:)

This is his check- list. Yes he added animals that ARE NOT THERE; but that still didn't stop him from adding those animals to his check- list. Maybe he knows something I don't (LOL)
