National Zoo

No visit is complete without a visit to a zoo! At least in my books anyway. Sometimes I think I went to college for the wrong thing and should've been a zoologist.

Anyways, we spent the day sweating out the heat and humidity by exploring the National Zoo --free of charge!

15 minutes with this guy can save you 15% or more on car insurance --until you crash of course.
