Yesterday Ann and Christi had to get back to Richmond, so they left around noon. Bob and Rose took most of the kids to the National Zoo (Nathan was gone all day to Richmond for a CAP cyberpatriot training day). It was just Drew and me at home, which was so nice and quiet! They had a good time at the zoo, although they did NOT get to see a giraffe (I heard about this travesty from all 3 girls). The panda exhibit was closed, because the girl might be pregnant, but the boy panda came outside and pooped in front of them (which also made a big impression on all the girls). I thought Micah would really like the animals, but he was a pill, even lying down and pitching a temper tantrum on a path at one point because he didn't want to ride in the stroller, walk, or be held. Ahh, the joys of a stubborn, tired 2-year old. The animals were probably watching him, LOL.
So we are really enjoying our company! Tomorrow the plan is to attempt Harper's Ferry . . .
