Let's go to the zoo!

On Sunday we all got bundled up and headed to the National Zoo for a few hours. It was the perfect fall day and after our Pre-Thanksgiving feast, we were ready to do some walking!

We got to see all kinds of animals and Adam seemed to be in awe of everything his eyes were taking in! One of the highlights was seeing three orangutans swinging from the ropes overhead. I don't think in all my visits to the zoo that I've actually seen them up there. It was a great show and Adam was mesmerized!

After that we headed to the new elephant trail and got super up close and personal with one of the elephants. It was great to introduce Adam to the animal that he had just dressed up as the week before!

Aside from that we saw the regulars, lions, tigers, cheetahs, zebras, a panda bear in the distance, and their newest animal, the sloth bear, who was much cuter than his name!

After making our way around the zoo we parked the Bob and fed Adam a little lunch before letting him run loose at the petting farm. He was in heaven! He loved looking through the fence to see what was inside and got a pretty close up view of some cows and mini-horses. It was so fun to watch him take it all in!

I see many more trips to the zoo in our future!
