National Zoo

Yesterday we had a great time at the National Zoo. Here are some photos. (If you get a chance to go, it's free and completely worth your time. Parking is pricey though.)

The lion was actually roaring. What an amazing sound! You can hear it all the way on the other side of the zoo.

Baby gorilla. His parents are just off photo, watching over him.

This was in the aviary. The bird was only inches from me.

Hot and tired after a long zoo trip

There's nothing like taking little ones to see wild animals for the first time.



  1. That bird is so beautiful! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Makes me want to visit the zoo soon. Haven't been to one in ages.

    I also just saw the movie We Bought a Zoo, and it was really sweet. :)

  2. Colorado Springs has a really awesome zoo. But as far as zoos go for me. if I've seen one, I've seen them all.

  3. Great pictures!

    My mom and I went to the National Zoo once when we visited D.C. It's an interesting place.

  4. It's been a LOT of years since I visited the D.C. zoo, but I loved it. One of the myna birds was imitating one of the women in our group, and had us all laughing so hard... then the bird imitated her laugh! Good to hear the entrance is still free. The cost to get into the Atlanta zoo has gotten outrageous.
