Back to the zoo

This morning we headed over to the zoo to try to catch a glimpse of the baby giraffe that made its debut last week. Unfortunately he wasn't out, but we did buy a handful of lettuce and let the girls feed the big ones.
Brian took some fantastic shots, and we spent a lot of time with the Howler monkeys. They were quite active this morning, and the girls had a ball watching them swing around their rocks and trees WHOOOP WHOOPing to each other.

We walked around the various exhibits, and then caught the tram up to the garden. This is Cheesie's favorite thing to do next to her fascination with the DC metro, so we're always riding it just for her. Once up at the garden we looked around, and found a little path down the hillside and along the river, so we all hiked down together. Cheesie wasn't pleased to miss another chance at riding a "train" and complained a bit towards the end, but it was a very beautiful walk through very peaceful woods.

Looks like you all had a good time. We spend a lot of time with the Howler Monkeys too. Jake, Josh, and Matt. See No, Hear No, and Spead No.

Our Best! The Hall Zoo
