President's Day Weekend

I don't think we've ever done President's Day weekend right before.  This year we did it justice, thanks to the Pennsylvania Garmans coming down for a visit.  The weekend included a twelve passenger van, twenty dollars worth of parking at the National Zoo (where we witnessed an ape repeatedly drinking its urine), forty-five degree weather at Mount Vernon (Brett, you told me it would be 70 degrees!), seven kids, three strollers, two hours at the Smithsonian Air and Space Center, and one failed bowling outing.  I think I smell a tradition starting...

Wow--you saw the baby lions? What a great zoo, though, right? We were used to the one in Okinawa which was...minimal, so this one was awesome!

I like your new banner picture...all those blue eyes! :o)
Sounds like you had quite an adventure, we've still never made it to the zoo in DC. I do think we'll wait until it is a bit warmer!
