National Zoo

Saturday we went to the National Zoo. At first I was a little disappointed because it didn't have some of the things Denver has. It had fewer lions and tigers, as well as fewer apes and gorillas.

It didn't even have a single giraffe. But, the location is so beautiful. It is beautifully landscaped--all green with shady trees lining the walkways.

In the end we saw plenty of things that Denver doesn't have, like chinchillas, pandas and a sloth bear (both brass and fur).

We posed with the brass one.

This is the furry one. 

After the zoo we rested up and went out to Captain Dan's for crabcakes, since it would be our last chance to have Brittany and Jasie taste the Maryland specialty before they leave. Here are a few Maryland Blue Crabs (free from gulf oil) that bought the farm at Captain Dan's.
