Pa-sticks DC Vacay Day Two

So we decided to head to the Zoo on our first full day, because they were calling for rain the next few days anyhow. It looked like it was kinda far from downtown D.C. on the map and google maps said driving would be way faster than riding the Metro, so we drove.... and it was stressful. Haha! But we made it to the Zoo in one piece!

We headed to see the Panda Bears first, which did not disappoint.

We saw two outside moving around and getting themselves some Bamboo to eat. Then we saw a baby one hanging in a tree! So cute! And finally one was inside sleeping on a rock and looking so cute.

We saw some Gorillas also...

It was around feeding time, and one got a brown bag of food from a zoo keeper then came to the corner we were at. So the boys had a cute lunch date! Haha!

Then we saw some Orangutans, and one came up to the window and interacted with us a little!! It was awesome!

And the Tiger and Lions were all active- which I feel like never happens at Zoos! They are always sleeping in the day. But the Tiger decided twice to go take a dip in the water, but didn't want to get its head wet! Haha.

We saw some elephants inside, but none outside. We also got to see these cute tamarin monkeys who kept slamming their little house door on each other, it was hilarious! We saw giraffes and huge turtles and other small animals. It was definitely a pretty good zoo- and the fact it was free really was awesome.

We had planned to do a picnic lunch at a park close by, but the address Google took us too was just a historic house we couldn't go in... no tables or playground or anything. So we picnicked in our vans with the air on! Haha! Then we navigated back to the hotel. We made a food plan and Jen, Dustin and I drove to a "nearby" Walmart.... which turned out to be 45 min away through awful awful traffic and merging. Jen handled it like a champ though!!

We cooked dinner and walked to get ice cream in our Crystal City neighborhood we stayed in. Then hit the hay :-)
