The National Building Museum
Part of a Lego Exhibit (why I wanted to go but not
that good, I liked other exhibits more)
The National Building Museum Great HallEmily and the Rocketship are off to the movies again to see Harry Potter but I continue to be a tourist. While they are at the movies I go to The National Building Museum, The Old Postal Building and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The last one was rather hurried but that was fine. I love going to museums alone at times because you spend exactly as long as you want to.

Then Emily and I continued on to the zoo. We don't let any grass grow under our feet! We checked out the pandas, all the big cats, the elephants and the apes. And as you could guess Happy Trails by mutual agreement we skipped the reptile house. There was thunder booming all around and it started to pour. We first avoided the rain by spending some quality time with the panda who showed her appreciation by putting on a little bit of a show. When we first got there she appeared dead but soon she rolled off her rock and began scratching and playing around. There were a lot of "Ahhhhs!"
My personal favorite.
Then it was on to the apes where we spent at least 30 minutes. There was a baby gorilla and mother who was great to watch. The other gorillas not so much. Are you aware they eat their sh** and then vomit it and eat it again. Over and over and over and over. Let's get back to the cuteness of the baby gorilla.
Mom and baby - see the arm
Keep saying, Ahhh!
And he's off climbing
He kept picking up the hay over his head and
shaking it as if he was going to throw it.
He never did but we were worried
he was going to fall. His mom had faith in
him though as mothers should.
This tiger had awesome roars. Truly magnificent!
Awesome supper from BRG - best burger ever!
And I think I already mentioned the Upwords tally
but some things bear repeating.
But who's counting?
