Took the Kids to Washington, D.C.

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.

    What? You came to DC and didn’t say “Hi”? (sniffs and pouts)

      Sorry, Sister. We were only in for about a day and a half and since we lived there for seven years we had to cram a lotta people-see’n into that time. Hope all’s going well with you guys.

    Squirells rank in our family too….Sammy is awed by them at the zoo when they are standing next to the lion exhibit!

    Love that you got to see a cheetah that close! How awesome.

    And this just gives you an excuse to head back to D.C. when the kids are a bit older and can appreciate the history of the city, not the critters!
