We were near the mall and pointing out a historic spot to our kids when one of them produced an audible in-drawn breath and said “A SQUIRREL! Ohmigish, Ohigosh, Mom, look at that!”
And the moral of the story is…six and three-year olds are a little too young to appreciate Washington, D.C.
We lived there for a while, so we had a great time seeing some of our friends. It’s always fun to be with the ole gang and catch up. I also got to see one of my best friends on the planet and meet her new baby.
We went to the National Zoo with my friend, her baby and her husband, who works at the zoo with cheetahs. When we got to that section of the zoo, he actually called the cheetah over and she came to see us. Okay, she came to see him. We were all pretty wowed by that.
And of course we saw a great squirrel. Good times.
