Today we ventured to the National Zoo in DC. The cool thing about this zoo is that it is part of the Smithsonian, which means it's FREE!!!! Unfortunately, that also meant that it was crowded today! It was a beautiful day, and actually got quite hot. It's hard to believe that 2 days ago we had our heat on and today we were sweating!!!! Anyway, back to the zoo....we had a great time and Brady really liked seeing all of the animals. I'm not really sure that he had/has a favorite per se, but I should note that he also really liked watching the construction that was going on!! LOL. Enjoy!

waiting to get on the "train" (the metro)

A sloth bear

the otters...always a favorite!!

Brady and his new friend!!

The male Giant Panda. They are apparently keeping the female inside because they are not sure if she is pregnant or not. Did you know that pandas only have ONE day a year that is optimal for getting pregnant?? YIKES!!! ( and I thought it was hard for us!!! LOL)

Beth Ann,
I want to be Brady, he does and sees amazing things.

Yeah.... I don't know that we had even one "optimal" day per year, but that was the biggest blessing of our lives.


Brady does seem to have a lot of fun, I agree!

What a blast! I love the zoo!

One optimal day per year?! I think I may be a distant realtive of the panda;) LOL!!!
