Visit to the Zoo | Washington D.C. Family Photographer

Went to the National Zoo today with my Aunt Nor and cousins, Taylor and Baley. It turned out to be a great day of warm weather and lots of walking. 15,000 steps to be exact (thanks to Taylor for the hourly pedometer updates!) Here are some favorites from the day! Deciding where to start... 2013-06-15_0001.jpg

I overheard the zoo lady ask some kids, "Did you know pandas eat for 60 hours straight?!" I shared the fun fact with my aunt who said, "How is that even possible?" "I don't know," I replied, "but it must be true because the zoo lady said so and that panda bear is sure going to town on that bamboo." Then she said it again. 16 hours straight. Still a lot, but not nearly as impressive as when I thought it was 60 ;)

It's a red panda in a tree! These guys are so cool!


Do you see it? I see it! Where? Over there! No, that's a rock. Hehe. Sometimes I think they just make empty exhibits to trick us into staring at it for hours convincing ourselves we see something ;)

And this is how I felt by the time I got home.... 2013-06-15_0019.jpg

But not Baley, he was still ready to go! 2013-06-15_0020.jpg
