Hard to believe, but we finally made our 1st (of about 1000) trips to the National Zoo here in DC over the long weekend. It's sooo close, but I guess we figured Joseph wouldn't have appreciated it much before now.
In the "Bird House," Brent and Joe Joe were straining their necks checking out this interesting creature, which in the end turns out to just be a pigeon.
We never got close enough for Joseph to actually notice one of our famous panda bears, but he did get a thrill out of the baby elephant, who walked around, drank and sprayed some water, and then peed and pooped in front of everyone.
And here's the reason why I'm hardly ever in any pictures:
Brent just points and shoots, not even waiting to make sure you're ready. Then he gets upset when I make him take the picture over and over again. Oh well, everyone already knows what I look like, and we'd all rather see pictures of the baby.
