Carson celebrating Howl-oween at the Oregon Zoo

"I reera, mama!"

Carson is six and this is the second year he’s had something in mind when I asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween. He was very sure he wanted to be, as he says, “a reera” and I did my best to make it happen. We visited the zoo for their annual Howloween scavenger hunt and got lots of great compliments from other zoo-goers, staff, and volunteers. One of the lionesses even gave him a second look. Carson was so excited and proud to be dressed as one of his favorite animals! Every time someone commented on our cute little zebra, He smiled and wiggled his little yarn tail.  His expressive language skills may need work, but his understanding and his imagination are just fine!
