Post zoocation 2018 we took a short trip south to Washington DC. So much to see and do in that town but we always make time to visit the National Zoo. Enjoy!

Washington is a great place to visit and no visit is complete without dropping by the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. The grounds open at 8AM and getting there early is a good idea. We were able to spend quality time admiring their four giant pandas – Tian Tian (male, age 19), Mei Xiang (female, age 18), Bao Bao (female, almost 3) and little Bei Bei (male, almost one year old). We learned their orangutan is pregnant and due in the fall and we missed the birth of their first sea lion pup in 32 years by only one day (darn it). It was a fun visit and a hearty shout out to Keeper Ashton for spending a generous amount of time with us.  We will be back.NATZOO6.16

Bao Bao-National ZooA quick trip to DC to visit recently transplanted friends would not be complete without seeing the National Zoo’s eight month old black and white panda, Bao Bao. Our timing was perfect. We got to spend quality morning time with Bao Bao before she climbed up into a tree for a long nap. I am a sucker for baby animals and there is something even more special about a baby panda.NATIONALZOO5.2014
