Hi there!

  • Connie

    Love these photos! I need to add this to a list of things I want to do with my stepdaughter when my husband and I get her for the summer.

      Thanks Connie! The zoo is a great place for kids, especially if you can catch the feeding times for the various animals!

    I think visiting zoos are fun :D That’s awesome that the Smithsonian one was free. The small animals are so cute, and I love pandas. They look so lazy in those photos though, haha.

    Aahh, I love looking at tigers. I think they’re such beautiful animals. I’ve seen lots of photos and videos where they act similar to small cats, which is cute :D

    That looks like a great zoo!

      Haha, I feel like I need to revisit the zoo again to see the pandas when they’re awake!
      I agree, tigers are such majestic creatures! I like them more than lions :)

  • Elena

    I love that it was free to enter. I really want to visit some of the Smithsonian museums, it is definitely on my bucket list.

    I love the pictures of the lions and tiger. And the pandas look so cute sleeping!

      Thanks Elena! I was hoping to see the pandas not asleep, but they were still cute so it’s worth it :)
      I love the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, that’s probably one of my favorite museums!

    Love the National Zoo! I grew up in Fairfax and I love having family in the area because I still love to take trips to DC. I’ve learned the best time to see the lions is around noon at feeding time, they’re very active. The tigers do always seem a little down, kind of sad :( Your pictures are lovely!

      Thanks for the tip Cori! When I visit the zoo again I’ll be sure to go a little earlier to catch the feeding time :D
