Riley loves Scooby Doo. So, when I received an email saying that Scooby Doo was going to be at a fundraiser for a no kill animal shelter, I just knew I had to bring her.
I told her that I had a surprise for her! She was so excited to be getting a surprise. We got in the car and drove to the fundraiser. We got out of the car and started searching for Scooby Doo. When I finally found him I told her to look it is Scooby Doo. She was super excited. She started screaming at him to wait for her. She was also yelling at him wanting to know where Shaggy was.As soon as we got real close to him, she was no longer excited to see him. She hid behind my leg and held on for dear life! So much for Scooby!
We did get to see lots of other animals. They had lots of dogs, a huge snake, a tortoise, some rabbits and a gerbil.The Chick-Fil-A cow was there and so was the Borden cow. She was excited to see them from a distance, but gave them the same reception as she gave Scooby Doo when we got closer. She did manage to get within an arm's length of the Borden cow, only because he had some stickers. She grabbed a sticker and ran.
We had a real fun day together. We walked in little boutiques along the way and stopped at all sorts of booths. She was able to slide on the Mystery Machine fun fump slide. She really enjoyed that!! We ended the day by visiting a large water fountain and welcoming the cool water sprinkles.
