The Zoo!

On one of the most beautiful days DC has seen this summer (at least according to the weatherfolk), Lilah got to go to the zoo. This past Wednesday Lilah's Bubbe, Uncle Steven and Aunt Sarah were in town and we all spent the day trying to hunt down some wild animals and take in the sun.

Starting out our visit around lunchtime, the pandas didn't want to come out to play, but luckily we were able to find this one (behind the frosted glass under where Lilah is standing) was taking a nap on its back just as cute as could be.

We also saw some elephants and gorillas, and Lilah checked out the kids area where the goats were very friendly and came right up to the side to visit. Lilah doesn't seem to be afraid of anything no matter how tall!

Lilah was fantastic, of course, even taking a nap while we munched on lunch and relaxed in the shade. After quite a hike through the zoo and back, we stopped to see one last turtle who was moving even slower than we were!

But eventually we had to come in out of the sun to visit our wild animal at home!

Although a fun day was had by all, we decided that next year maybe an April trip will be in order since the cooler weather may allow for more animal viewings.

In addition to getting out on the town, Lilah has also been learning new skills at home, including rocking in her new rocking chair from Bubbe. Go Lilah go!
