We went to the Zoo. We went to the Zoo for one day. We went to the Zoo for one day with friends. We went to the Zoo for one day with friends, six kids two adults.
The second week of March the kids and I packed up and headed to Pennsylvania. We had planned a trip for a warm weather day for a National Zoo trip with friends. The plan was for Autumn and kids to pick us up at 5 am, then drive to D.C. have a picnic lunch, tour the zoo and head home. Easy right? Well the oldest child had just turned 4, two weeks before and the youngest, was a whopping 4 weeks old!
After a few logistical challenges – ever try to fit 6 carseats in a minivan? And few pitstops – half the kids were potty trained. We arrived at the National Zoo, picnicked in parking lot and with 2 double strollers and 2 baby wearing devices took 6 kids through the zoo.
Here are some of the highlights from the trip.
All in all we had a great day at the National Zoo- great weather, great friends, great memories.
P.S. I’m working on updating the past year’s photos and blog postings. Stay tuned.
