A visit to the zoo

Another fun day today.  The weather today was even better than yesterday.  It was just as nice and not nearly as windy.  We started the morning with a walk to Shirlington, where we both got our hair cut.

Later in the day, Jen came over and then we all headed up to the National Zoo.  It was a very busy day at the zoo, lots of people, many of them tourists from the cherry blossom festival.  But it was still fun.  We spent about 2-1/2 or three hours wandering around the zoo.  We saw monkeys and zebras and elephants and rhinos and lions and tigers.  I had a tasty hot dog and later I had some dippin’ dots.

We headed home late in the afternoon.
