Washington National Zoo











My husband, son and I all went to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. We had perfect weather and a great day. My husband is a Metro rider and does not like driving into DC and I don't like riding trains that go underground. No way! So we drove in. It's pretty congested and we managed to find it after driving through half of DC first. I don't think I yelled or cursed once while we were lost!!! The zoo was wonderful. They had so many great exhibits and animals and even the food was terrific! We had great BBQ and I'm not even a big BBQ person. My favorite animal was the gorilla. I just love them. They are so human like to me.

Here's some fun news! Ree of The Pioneer Woman Cooks is coming to Borders bookstore in Fairfax county, Virginia this coming Tuesday and I'm going to the book signing to have her sign my cookbook! I am so excited to meet her! I will have my husband and son with me to take pictures and I'll be posting them. Oh am I ever looking forward to this!!!!! Have a great weekend everyone!

OMG! Can't believe The Pioneer Woman will be visiting SO close to where I used to live....Oh, so tragic!

I've been to the National Zoo only once. I, like your husband, prefer the metro. :-)

I bet the metro stops within 100 yards of the zoo... DC Streets or DC underground... underground sounds safer
