Because today was a holiday, Bill had the day off! I can't remember the last time he had a day off during the week, so we decided to take Stephen downtown to see the monuments and get some pictures. Unfortunately, because of the holiday, it was really busy and we couldn't find a parking spot anywhere close to the Mall...shocker! So we decided to head to the zoo instead! The National Zoo is free, which makes it a great place to take the little ones. Despite the chilly temps, we were able to see a bunch of animals and had a great time walking around (I think the chilly temps kept the crowds away). We saw the giant pandas, red pandas, lots of birds, cheetahs, zebras, gazelles, and elephants.
Here are some pics from our zoo adventure:
