Family arrived on Saturday and Miss H is thrilled to hang around her cousins (aunt and uncle too but the cousins are the greatest!). They arrived in the evening on Saturday and the Miss H instantly had two new best friends.

We headed to the zoo on Sunday morning. It was a little chilly but the animals were out and about.

Then we saw the big cat. He just paced around and around.

Miss H immediately spotted the carousel and everyone got a cool ride.

We were on a mission to find the pandas. Luckily, we were successful.

We even got the kids to pose for a fun picture.

The brothers had to catch a little break whenever they could.

The flamingos might have been Miss H’s favorite part.

After seeing lots of animals, we headed for a late lunch and then off to see more sites.

Air and Space

27 Jan

We ventured into town to enjoy part of the day at the National Air and Space Museum. Miss H was pretty fascinated by all the planes. I think she was a little disappointed that she could not climb into them all.

Hey, why is this blocked off?

And why can’t I really steer this thing?

But she found a fun little tunnel to climb into.

We wandered around and enjoyed seeing the exhibits on Mars and space.

We both realized that we are totally spoiled by all the local museums! We can drive downtown, we found great parking, spend a few hours, admission is free, we are all entertained and then we can come back another weekend.
