Last Saturday we took advantage of the warm springlike weather and headed up to the National Zoo. Word to the wise, do not go to the zoo in the dead of winter. Apparently the animals didn't get the memo that it was a nice day. We saw a few animals, but most were tucked in their warm beds, ignoring the fact that several dozen humans stood ready to snap their pictures. How very rude. We still had a great time. Life is always better when you are out of the house.
