This morning we got up, got dressed, and hit the Metro to head to the National Zoo. We knew the girls would enjoy it and honestly, who doesn't love a zoo with fun animals? The weather was quite chilly when we left, so we all had to take sweaters and jackets. It's a nice change from Texas, which is just getting hot all the time now. This was Kate's first experience on the subway, and she was all excited about riding the train like I had told her about until she saw one speed off from the station and it was a little loud and really fast. She hugged close to me until we boarded and she was a little bit hesitant, but eventually she relaxed. For part of our ride we were on a rail above the roads so she could see out the windows, which she really liked but mostly we were underground.
