National Zoo

We love the National Zoo in DC. Its free for one which is awesome but it's huge as well. Lots of good animals to see. For the first time in months it was a great day yesterday for going out. Still freezing but at least not snowing or raining and the roads were clear. So we had to go out. Kids loved it. Matt and I loved it. Must do it again.

Luke was so excited when this small tortoise started walking. Pretty cool to see.

Giant tortoises. In the words of Lyd, "WHOA!"

My favorite pic.

This momma gorilla was awesome. She has a little baby in her lap. By the time I pulled out the camera the baby ducked back down. Its amazing how much they look like humans.

The orangatangs were my favorite. They have such freakishly long arms and were swinging everywhere. So fun.

Every kid should have his own anteater statue....

I just love this one. Luke didn't want to smile for the camera or take a pic with me so I tickled him. I love being a mom.
