Our 7th Anniversary

We celebrated our 7th anniversary with a kiddo free day at the Nat1onal Zo0. It was an unusually cool day in July so most of DC was also at the zoo. We couldn't find a place to park so we ended up having to walk 6 blocks uphill to the free zoo. But, luckily for us we didn't have to pay for parking, so it was indeed free. We walked a lot, but it was worth it.

On our way to the zoo


The parking situation at the zoo....packed!

I can't remember what kind of animal this is....a very large guinea pig, maybe?

The hippo

It was a little freaky that thesen primates were not in cages, but also neat to see them roaming the trees just over our heads.....

The bald eagle

After our day at the zoo we went to W1ndows on the B@y for dinner. It is the restaurant that was the setting for our first date 7 years ago in February 2000. We had a fabulous time and the food was delicious. Except for the dessert. It was lacking, but they are not known for their desserts. They are known for their seafood and that rocked.

The appetizer - hot crab dip and bread

My dinner - grilled salmon topped with crabmeat, steamed veggies and rice

Rick's dinner - shrimp stuffed with crabmeat and steak topped with mushrooms with a side of steamed veggies and whipped potatoes

Mmmm...that food looks yummy. Happy Belated Anniversary. Oh, and can you explain how February of 2007 was seven years ago to me? It must be that NEW math! ;)


I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
