Hey! Wait A Minute! Those Aren't Cherry Blossoms......

....it's the.....

YAY!

With the beautiful weather and this being the last weekend of the blooms - DC was, well...a ZOO!
No parking to be had to see the Cherry Blossoms, so...

Pooldad decided a detour here would be fun.
And it was!

Porcupine.
LOVE!


RAWR!

Double RAWR!


4 lion cubs were born this spring - getting big!



Love you!


See the baby on her back?


Love you too!
What a wonderful day - great stories.

We won't mention the street cart hot dog with mustard and onions and the fresh squeezed lemonade.
Nope. We won't :wink:

Have a great Monday Tadpoles! Here's hoping spring has finally arrived. :)

Morning SkippyMom! It's just after 7 a.m. here in England as I type this!! So, they didn't get to see the cherry blossom after all, but looks as if they had a great time. Really enjoyed seeing the photos today. Hope you're feeling okay.

I'm sorry you weren't able to join in the family fun--the zoo looks like a good one! D.C. is one of the places we haven't been yet so perhaps we'll try to squeeze it in this summer. What's not to like about heat and humidity, right?

Hope the hotdog was as good as anticipated. Sounds yummy!

I love the zoo - wasn't it a lot of walking?

Those are great pictures. Looks like they had fun and were definitely thinking of you while taking them. She is adorable (looks just like you) and he is a great Dad!

Hugs and love!

It's been a while since I've been to the zoo. Last time I went though I saw a zebra with a huge hot dog if you know what I mean.
