Trip to the Zoo!

After our play date on Saturday, we headed off to the National Zoo. It was a nice day and Brandon and Faith had never been. First we had to stop by "the office" so Scott could pick up some things. I decided I should post some pics of where we work, because it really is a nice building.

Here is the corner - up the road to the left is the parking garage. Which, even as an employee, you have to pay a bundle to park in there!

The front of the building - and my hubby going in to to get his things. Now here is a strange side note: On the way to D.C. I realized I did not have my sunglasses! I said "how am I going to spend the day at the zoo without sunglasses??" I planned on looking for a street vendor to buy a cheap pair. Well, Scott came out of the office with a stack of goodies that were left for me in his desk drawer:) In that stack of goodies was a beautiful pair of new sunglasses! WOW! What are the odds? Thank you, sweet, wonderful sunglass provider!

Ahh, we have arrived at the zoo at last! I am sporting my new sunglasses.

The Ape House - Zach's FAVORITE place in the zoo. Zach, Brandon and Faith all really enjoyed the apes. We took a pic of the boys looking at the apes - but there is A LOT of ape poo in the picture, so I thought I would spare you:)

Another set of twins?

I didn't take a lot of pictures of the kids. Just a lot of pictures of animals. I have been visiting this very same zoo since I was 2 years old or so. It was funny to me to look at the pictures I took and see that they look just like the pictures I have from 1974! LOL Zoo pictures never change.

I really really wanted to take the kids to the petting zoo, and THOSE are the pictures I really wanted. By the time we got there, they had closed! I was super disappointed.

When we left to go home, I had left my camera in the stroller which was in the back of the truck. Ok, not a big deal I thought, we were just driving home. Well let me tell you the sights we drove by on the way home - through D.C.. We drove by some SUPER HUGE wooden chair that had a bunch of kids sitting on top of it. It was cool. Then we drove by a building that had a HUGE pink ribbon on it for Breast Cancer Awareness. That would have been a good picture to post! Finally, we were sitting at a traffic light - I look to my left and what do I see? The EXORCIST STAIRS!!!!! I could NOT believe it! I have always wanted to see them and take a picture of course - and there I was really close! I had to go home and google it to make sure I was correct - and Oh yeah, I was! There you go - that was a lesson learned. ALWAYS HAVE MY CAMERA!

EXORCIST STAIRS?? I had to Google that too cause I didn't know what the heck you were talking I'm picking up what you're putting down. I wonder if we drove right by them too when we were in DC....we drove all over that flippin place! Glad you guys had a great time at the zoo. Hopefully next time the petting area will be open. The boys LOVE that!

Gosh Peg, those kids are growing so fast! Even Zach! We'll see you sometime within the next 2 weeks. AppleButter here this weekend and we have to work at our church serving food. Love U!!

Looks like a fun day. Sorry you missed some good shots. I always see things that would make a good pic when I don't have my camera too.

Looks like you guys had fun! My kids love the zoo. In fact we went the day before school started as a last hoorah and we are going again in a few weeks for a halloween festival. Can't wait!
