When I heard that the girls wanted to go to the zoo, I just had to chime in. Me, me, oh me too, please! I just love going to the zoo, seeing all the different animals and learning different facts about them. It’s so much fun to let the otters put on a show for you or watch an orangutan make his bed before he takes a nap. Even better when your 8-year-old niece can teach you what she’s learning about invertebrates and other animals. The chilly weather just couldn’t keep us away from spending a day at the National Zoo.
