national zoo

My mom and I took the kids to the zoo today.  Did you know that the National Zoo is 125 years old?  And did you know that the original Smokey Bear lived there in the 1950's? 

I think this guy slept most of the day... can you believe how big he is getting?

Kai wasn't the only one sleeping away the hot afternoon.  This is Mei Xiang (may-SHONG), the adult female Panda.  Mei Xiang and Tian Tian (t-YEN t-YEN) had their second (surviving) baby last Summer. There was a crowd around the baby, Bao Bao, so no pictures of her.

Every animal statue is another photo op...

I totally love Tallulah's face in this one :)
We were bummed that the zoo no longer has giraffes and hippo's but everybody had a good time and we ended the outing with Italian ice from Rita's... it doesn't get much better than that!
