Last day in D.C.

Clark told us one of their favorite places in D.C. is the FREE zoo! Since we saw almost all the sights we could to see (including the Smithsonian American History Museum), and neither of us can remember the last time we went to a zoo, we decided that would be a cool place to check out.  And it was!
after we took the long metro ride and walk to the zoo, we fueled up at the Starbucks across the street and headed inside!

 Here are a few of the cool animals we saw:
 Sloth Bear
 Pandas on lease from China
 red tailed panda---super cute!


And quite possibly my favorite animal of the day: The Naked Mole Rats
 (if you haven't read Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems you need to)
 On our way back to our hotel we stopped at Iwo Jima (to nurse!)

 View from Iwo Jima (very close to our hotel)
 Walking back to the Metro to catch a train to the airport. Are you impressed with our minimal luggage? What you see is everything we brought and Keith carried it all the whole time!
 Crying a little on the plane :( Sorry other passengers, 4 hours is too long of a plane ride for us!
Once she fell asleep she was amazing the whole trip back!

All in all it was a truly wonderful trip!  The wedding was so fun, the sight seeing was superb, the weather was fantastic (75-80 degrees and sunny the whole time!), and Kendall surpassed all our expectations! Someday we'll return so Kendall can actually remember it :)
