We have had a fun October and now it is Halloween. We would like to share some Halloween fun we have done:
Friday, the Zoo had it’s annual Squishing of the Squash. That is where they give the elephants a giant pumpkin to squish and then eat. It was a lot of fun to watch the elephants take on a large gourd:
In this video the baby (2 year old) elephant ended up with a fairly large chunk of the pumpkin. He was trying with all his might to break the chunk into smaller pieces without much avail. Here is when he was quite frustrated with it and ended up getting it all over his face.
Ruth and I got pictures with some of the pumpkins that were not smashed.
And here is some delicious chocolates that my dad’s wife, Terry, gave us for Halloween.
Ruth is mimicking the best one, which was surprisingly filled with something similar to pop-rocks. They were all very good.
