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!
