We took a trip to the National Zoo in D.C.
Don't worry. We had a super great time. The weather was perfect. The animals were happy and active. Our friends were with us. It was splendid.
This was in remarkable contrast to the last time we went when it was 100 degrees outside and so humid that I felt like I was drowning. I was also nauseous, starving, winded, and tired the entire day because I was with child and my body hated me. I did not have good memories.
