Homeschool Co-Op Zoo Trip 2008

We went to the National Zoo at the end of May for our monthly field trip. We took Kari out of school so she could go with us. It was a great day - not too hot, breezy and sunny. Rick even got to go! We had a fabulous time!

I love this picture of the panda. We had great views of the pandas!

These spiders were not in an enclosed case. We were told once they make their webs, they do not leave them, so there is no reason to close them in a case.


The lioness was growling loudly and the lion was no where in sight. Guess male lions have selective hearing, too!

Pouty face


Prairie Dawgs

I always take a side shot of Rick while he is driving when we take a trip, so here is the usual shot. But, I added another one....

My lame attempts of trying to get a few shots of some of the homes I love in Chevy Chase, MD






This is what Kari and Noah (and Hannah) look like after a long day at the zoo
