After I survived the metro ride, which went very smoothly (I recommend this type of transportation when visiting D.C.), we followed the crowd to the escalators. Let me just say, the very long, steep, slow climbing escalator was a tad scary. We stepped on nervously, leaned forward, held on and didn't look back. Holly had such a tight grip on the railing, her little knuckles were white. Matt, Gabby, and I laughed and laughed and laughed about that. Holly didn't think it was so funny.
Once we arrived, we ventured over to the bear exhibit. This guy looked like he had been sitting there for hours posing for people to take pictures or it could of been that he found a warm spot in the sun and was feeling lazy.
We couldn't pass up going into the reptile house. While we were waiting to go through, we were entertained by Orangutan's crossing over on the ropes above.
Matt was in his glory but the girls got a little bored. Love this shot of the girls. They were really intrigued by something.
Can you see whose yawning?
I was impressed how well this turned out considering I was shooting through the glass.
Looks like he's smiling at me.
Love this reflection shot.
We were thrilled to see the Panda come out of his hiding spot.
Time to go home.
The entire day was perfect and we left with a lot of memories.
