at the National Zoo

Last week Elliott’s dad, Elliott, Lena, and I took a trip to the National Zoo in D.C.  Elliott has been visiting at least annually since he was 10 years old and he even did an internship at the zoo while he was in veterinary school.  We toy with the idea of Elliott taking a zoo animal residency at the National Zoo, but… well… maybe some things are better left to enjoy while visiting grandparents instead of every day and night and most weekends for three years as a resident.  You know?
Also, can I just say that I love going to the zoo?!  Multiple times I would forget about showing Lena the animals and just stare in awe through the glass at the fantastic reptiles and crazy gorillas.  I would love to live in D.C. and be within driving/walking distance of this fabulous zoo again.  If we move back to Capitol Hill, Elliott and I could return to our newlywed days of biking to the zoo on our way to church… but this time we’d have kiddos riding on our bikes with us!

    We were at the zoo this weekend too! (My son fell in love with the flamingos.) How awesome is it that the zoo is free? It’s such a great resource.

    I love the picture of Lena with the giant bucket of popcorn and all of those warning signs. I can imagine people would get sick of the zoo after working there, but it might be nice to see all of the behind the scenes work as well. I grew up going to the Lincoln Park Zoo all the time in Chicago.

    The DC zoo is the best! Love the lizard pics. It’s so fun to watch kids and animals together. :-)
