I’ve been gone a lot over the past six weeks–three long weekends out-of-town.
I’m really behind in everything I’m supposed to be doing. But I’m back and plan to get caught up!
So where was I on this last trip?
I hate having my kids living so far away from me. We don’t get to see them nearly enough, but at least they live in fun places.
We were just in DC for 5 days to visit Jessica and Andrew. They live in the Cleveland Park area which is a quick walk to the National Zoo. (no, I’m not talking about congress or the presidential race)
We went there a couple times. Just so I could get some photos of the pandas.
So I gave up on the pandas.
This elephant was much more cooperative. Because he’s kind of big and has no where to hide!
And the Bison
We went walking through the trails in Rock Creek Park every morning.
Which was a good thing because we did a lot of eating and drinking!
We had a private tour of the Smithsonian Natural History Arachnid department by the curator, Hannah Wood. Her mom is a mermaid! Pays to know someone!
Took a touristy afternoon to see a few sites.
We also checked out all of the war memorials.
It was a great visit!. We won’t be taking any mini-vacas for awhile so I’ll get back into my old routine!
Have a great weekend! Maybe I’ll see you out and about!
