Zoobilee National Zoo

We took Abby to the zoo the other day for her 3rd zoo experience but first time at the National Zoo in DC.  The cool thing is that it’s free (as is most stuff in DC), except for parking.  It was a nice zoo but a lot of the animals were sleeping, hiding, or just not there (uh, well where were they then?).  It was fairly hilly too but had a decent layout.  Since it’s free/open to the public, runners can go through but I found it to be kind of annoying (as a runner and as a zoo guest) since there are so many people around and kids scattering all about.  I wouldn’t think it would be conducive to a satisfying run – but I digress.

 

The first animal we saw was a cow.  Wow!  Imagine that.  Actually, they had a “farm” section for kiddos that included cows, donkeys, alpacas, etc.  We saw elephants, pandas, tigers, cheetahs, aquatic animals, monkeys, zebras, and more.  No giraffes though.  Here are some pics:

 

Ack!  This thing was creepy.

We recently sold our house in Pennsylvania and moved to Virginia and bought a new home. I'm excited to get accustomed to our new home base and explore all the surrounding areas! I'm a pharma data analyst by day, a lullabye-singin' mommy by night. We also have a beagle named Sophie and a large-girthed cat named Nacho. Things I like: family togetherness, nature, hiking, movies, photography, reading, planning and organizing, exploring, music, biking, jogging, etc.
