We spent the day at the National Zoo, exploring all the wonderful animal enclosures and the gorgeous SPRING day of blinding sunshine, azure skies and 70 degree temperatures.  OH, how I needed that...

The zoo is home to a breeding pair of giant pandas and their cub, who will be heading back to China, eventually.

Let me just say, that I don't like to embue animals with human characteristics.  I know pandas are wild animals.

But OMIGOSH how cute is that big cuddly thing?

Don't even get me started on the new gorilla baby.
